Ok let's get back to the topic of google security. It probably just means your device is now part of a botnet. Nothing to worry yourself about as botnet hackers usually want to keep their botnets intact, so they will only affect the other computers they use yours to attack.

it doesnt matter anymore, I think it was a false positive.. some app or someyhing made google think it was a window device (perhaps some snaps or something).. I got information of some linux discord channel that they say snap discord were suspicious and untrusted and putted there by unkown sources. Im now using flatpak's discord..

Im now reviewing periodilly security google tab process validation and see as well 3 devices, but all of them are my Android and linux system... perhaps the culpier were that one snap discord...

by the way, my linux system installation is very healthy, I use btrfs snapshots consolitation everytime i install something doesnt belong to repositories or is snap/flatpaks, this way I can rollback easily if after some use time I detect anything doesnt goes as expetected.. And I have been using ubuntu's kernel from ages and didnt give into any trouble... I dont know what can be unsuported about doing that, but it doesnt affect to my system so I will keep doing it, cos im not a sheeped mind with muzzle.

Failing to cover your organic portal in public is very inappropriate, unless you are a sheep. (We can't expect animals to keep a mask on.)

Seriously. if there is a chance that your google account is compromised, you should change your password. You said it yourself, you use a password manager. That makes it easy.

Of course, you asked for advice, it is up to you to decide to use it or not.
