Blobs? What are they?

Post by waynethetodd » Fri Jul 06, 2018 7:02 pm

Hey, I was having some problems with google adwords and my site. Apparently They've found some malicious links, and we are pretty sure that we got hacked somehow, and I'm just trying to find the files whoever hacked us infected.

As I was looking at our network in GoogleDev, I noticed these files with the prefix "blob:" listed under "Network"

Does anyone know what these are? Should I worry about them or are they things that the site needs to run?

some examples of the files I found are:

blob: ... ec197f6b9e
blob: ... d162f91889
blob: ... 5cb50d5868
blob: ... d6e04e2ced

They are highlighte red in the "Network" section of GoogleDevTools. I'm mostly just trying to find out what these are and if they're dangerous.

my url in question is

'Blob' files are not part of WWB, they are not added or uploaded by WWB.

Also, I could not find anything related to blob files on Google.
