Ok so I got on this website and when I opened it it started saying how it was scanning my browser and then on the page it had something like a dd something was initiating.

Anyways before it could load further i backed out.

I have ublock origin installed but i didnt know about the reccomended third party filter settings.

And i got out and cleared my cookies. I ran multiple anti virus apps from the app store and they said i came up clean.

But what about rootkits? Is it possible that i may have gotten a rootkit from the site?

I dont know if anything downloaded would it be in my downloaded folder?

I didnt click anything on the site.

I have a samsung galaxy s6 and i was using firefox with ublock origin installed.

And on my phone in my documents i have this file called installinfo.txt

It has like chinese characters in it and has a long column of the word root next to a bunch of other stuff
