Not sure where to post this - did I get infected by viewing this site?

    Went to youtube, hit shift+enter and firefox, being the weird browser that it is, added a .net to the .com address (because of the shift+enter)

    The end result was a redirect to iwsearch.net (particularly -http://www.iwsearch.net/find.html-). Wondering if there is anything malicious here? Firefox is running adblock plus + noscript, and my browser is sandboxed (running win7 64bit)

    I've got no idea where to ask this, since wilders doesn't seem to have a "general security discussion" forum. Since it seems to be malware related, I just decided I'd post here where the malware experts are.

    Suffer from paxil-enhanced OCD, so bear with me!

    I'd appreciate tips on where to post this, if this is an incorrect section, and I'd appreciate it even more if a mod would move it (again, providing this is an incorrect section)

    Aye, but according to virustotal's url scanner and urlvoid's scanner (1/16) it is not going to infect just by visiting. mywot is the only website that flags it, so idk

    AVG LinkScanner reports it free of exploits as well.

    -Edit-

    By the way, URLVoid not always provides up-to-date reports. I've verified for quite a few times that both Browser Defender and Norton SafeWeb (they have same ratings) would report it clean in URLVoid, while checking on both would report as being malicious websites.
