Supergiftland redirection - am i safe?

Hi

A few days ago, I was suddenly redirected to the site supergiftland.7710.info with lots of blah blah blah about winning an iPhone etc. Norton gave no pop-up about Intrusion Prevention. I did some research and saw that this was an potentially dangerous adwaresite with lots of possible problematic consequences. I did a full systemscan with Norton and also with Malwarebytes. Both came up clean. I don't have the symptoms that characterizes this adware: no suspicious processes, no banners or pop-ups or redirects and no programs were added. My system hasn't slowed down either.

What can I take from this all? Am I safe? I don't have any of the possible features that are associated with this piece of malware. So was this just a coincidental redirection to a scamsite with no further consequences? Or do I have to look out for other signs of this virus and take more precautions?

Thanks in advance.

Please verify your DNS server entries are set to correct ones.
Issue :

ipconfig /all

in an elevated (admin) command prompt and verify the DNS entries....Do you use adblockers or script blockers in your browsers?

DNS server is set to 192.168.1.1. (like it should be, I think)

At this moment, I'm using AdBlockPlus in Firefox, but no scriptblocker.

Hi,
Well, then I suggest you to use noscript addon for FF. Eventhough it'll be a bit mess at beginning, you'll learn to train it for your daily use after some days.

So was this just a coincidental redirection to a scamsite with no further consequences

I hope so. Let us see if this happens again...

Thanks for the feedback, Nikhil and Bjm.

Haven't had any problems since, so I'm probably fine!
