Hi,

I accidentally typed gogle.ro instead of http://www.google.ro and that website redirected me to a very strange website called : 69.6.27.18/facebook/spotthedifference/
NoScript (with Firefox) blocked the website and gave me a link of it, instead of giving me the website. I closed the webpage immediately and went to history and spotted another website just before typing gogle.ro, and that was : login.tracking101.com/sw/95016/CD47880/

My question to you guys is.. did NoScript protect me from a possible malitios attack ? Or cookie stealing ? or should I start to worry and reinstall my windows ?
If someone has the courage, please test it out!

Thanks in advance!

EDIT : I also found a "tracking cookie" in firefox and removed it


Edit: Links disabled, to preclude possible infection. ~tg
