Accidentally went to a strange website unsure if I'm infected

Recently I tried a Firefox extension called Whitelist Ninja and after I setup the password for it I tried to go to my add-ons and it blocked it of course but I wasn't paying attention to what it said it was blocking apparently it redirected me hxxp://www.undefined.com/ this website sounds fishy just by the name alone and looks just as fishy. Now most of my software is up to date except for Java and Flash although I have Firefox configured to automatically clear cache when I close it and hardware acceleration is off plus all my plug-ins are disabled (except VLC "ask-only") I also have Noscript and Request Policy installed but nothings bullet proof. So I would like to determine if I'm infected or not.

Hello SuperSapien64:
 
You may wish to initiate your own self directed investigation by submitting suspicious URLs to VirusTotal.com (VT) amongst many others.
 
Also, please consider obfuscating URLs (you are suspicious of) in your posts so that less experienced readers do not click on them. e.g. hxxp://someresource.com or place them in a BB "code" box:

http://www.undefined.com/

In this individual case above, VT scores that website as 0/63. (benign)

 

Installing Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit will serve to strengthen your system's defensive arsenal by blocking malware exploits towards the computer's OS and through most popular browsers.
 
Your friendly moderator (quietman7) may graciously follow-up with a comprehensive list of other websites that automate the investigation of URLs .
 
Thank you.

All viruses are malware but not all malware are viruses and if the malware doesn't self replicate it just isn't a virus.

Thanks 1PW I fixed that link and I also scanned with VirusTotal when I went to that URL and I got the same score but I also scanned with Quttera Sucuri booth of them said it was clean but Sucuri detected critical server errors and lastly I scanned the IP address with Metascan-Online it also said it was clean.

My security setup is Avast free,MBAM Premium, Comodo Firewall free, Sandboxie (though I had it disabled), Unchecky, Zemana Antikeylogger free, so after I went to that website I first ran CCleaner then did a full scan with Avast and custom C-drive scan rootkit scan with MBAM both found nothing. And I guess why I came here is because I was hoping I could have assistance with running some system logging tools on Windows to officially verify if I have an infection or not.

Yes...there are number of web resources which can be used to check suspicious/unfamilar sites or get second opinions.-- Use several different vendors when performing queries to confirm the results of page content. Even doing this, you still need to be cautions of other links on the page itself which can redirect to a malicious page.

If you still would like additional assurances, the following is the beginning to that pathway:

As a note for the future you might like to consider installing NoScript as an extension within firefox and installing malwarebytes anti-exploit on your system, both are designed to protect you in this sort of situation, as both are pre-emptive blocking tools which stop any executable or exploitable content unless you specifically allow it, so they are not limited to blocking only known infections and malicious sites in a definitions blacklist database.

Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB

I actually have both Noscript Request Policy installed in Firefox and I also have Sandboxie to but it was disabled when I was testing this extension that bought me that domain. And spaeking of that domain quietman7 here's the what Anubis has to say about it http://anubis.iseclab.org/?action=result&task_id=1735d480ee97351c45df55ab9808e2e5e and every other site scanner you listed said it wasn't malicious but I'd rather be a %100 sure about my Windows 7 system being clean after going to that odd website, so tomorrow I'm going to fallow up on the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs to find out if I'm clean but for now I'm going to bed thanks. :)

Now that your new topic is posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Response Team member...nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the information or any log(s) you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process or make things worst which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Response Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response because the Malware Response Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers but your topic will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. Once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Response Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another Malware Response Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

I advise checking your new topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, please follow Step One and CLICK the link so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

Good luck.
