Earlier I was online and had an e-mail from my phone carrier asking me to take a survey. Everything looked legit and they e-mail me from time to time so I went ahead and clicked the survey link within the message (copying the link location gives me a URL of http://t2.ktrmr.com/surveys.aspx?pid=72581187&i.project=D5FX3&s=GEN24&id=1&chk=967&rs=1). This opened a new tab and the address bar showed a string of characters that ended in .dll in front of the http://.... URL. Nothing was visibly loaded on the page (possibly due to Firefox forbidding a redirect or NoScript doing its thing), but I got scared and killed the tab as fast as I could and started running the virus scans. Sorry, I didn't get more of the filepath.
So, I'm a little out of my depth here. Is there any legitimate reason a .dll would be part of a URL? Nothing weird has occurred since then, nor did my protective programs ping anything, but this seems really odd to me. I've run a full scan with MalwareBytes and then with Microsoft Security Essentials (both came back clean), and plan to endure the 12-hour nightmare of HouseCall. Is there any other action I should take?
Vitals: Windows 7, Firefox 35.0.1 w/ NoScript.
Thank you for your time, and I appreciate any information or help you can give me.
