Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Last day I finished my website and tried to check how it looks on other browsers using www.browsershots.org , but I had a mistake while writing the address and I wrote http://browsershot.com which redirected me to http://rudespace.com . The website which I've been redirected to is an adult one and I really hate I did that.

Now I'm really worried and I don't know what should I do? Stay calm because everything's fine or worry?

I'd say, stay calm if everything is file, and worry a bit, if not. –  mikewhatever Jan 23 '13 at 8:57
    
It happens at times. Don't worry, it was never your fault. –  saji89 Jan 23 '13 at 9:55

Stay calm.

  1. Not all adult sites provide you with malware
  2. If nothing special happened besides a redirect, there is no reason to suspect misbehaviour.
  3. The site is not listed as suspected as far as I checked, for instance with avg

You migtht want to remove your browser history or cookies if you hate the fact that you could be 'linked' to an adult site, but that's more of an "ow no, if someone uses my account and really digs deep, they see this site's address" thing, and not an "ow no, there is something wrong with my computer and they are stealing my creditcard" thing :)

I analysed that page using virustotal.com, here are the results. Furthermore, in general, you don't have to be afraid of viruses when on Linux. You can read here about this topic, when you are more interested in viruses on Linux.
