Hi, I'm a little paranoid after accidentally visiting a recipe site in Firefox (latest ESR edition) private browsing sandbox mode with Noscript & ublock.
The specific URL is http://www.    recipesbnb.     com/sloppy-janes/107634
Virustotal says it's safe and Sucuri Sitecheck says the site uses an outdated wordpress.
Emsisoft Antimalware was active at the time with no problems.
I quickly closed Firefox and opened TCPView and noted these 3 lines -

<non-existent>              5068              TCP              50466                  https              LAST_ACK                                                                                                              

<non-existent>              5068              TCP              50523                  http              CLOSING                                                                                                                        

<non-existent>              5068              TCP              50523              xytio.com              http              CLOSING              

It seems like the site is safe, but I was wondering if I could get a 2nd opinion from the team here? The site looks suspicious with its collection of random images for food items.

Using an outdated Wordpress is extremely risky for the site and YOU. Really don't need much more info than that

to conclude to stay away from it. I did visit the site and noted one of the scripts wanting to run is mc.yandex.ru https://mc.yandex.ru - Google Search
