Hi there,
 

i am a bit worried about something that just happend to me, it may sound completely paranoid but i just want to be safe rather than sorry. So i was surfing on a website when at one point i stumbled on a youtube link. In my hasty action i didn't notice that it was just a concealment and i got redirected to a site that wasn't really youtube (it looked more like an erotic dating site and it really looked kinda fishy) I closed the site immediately. I know it is quiet stupid but i don't really know alot about IT stuff but is it possible that i might of gotten a virus or anything of that nature in those two seconds i was on that site ?

Regards
