I am concerned about the security when I run Ubuntu without an anti-virus and visit a hacked website. I feel that this question then should be asked here and not anywhere else. I can't seem to comprehend why it has attracted a lot of close flags and negative up-votes.
I don't have an antivirus running on my laptop. I run an regularly updated Ubuntu 14.04 on it. I unintentionally visited a hacked website:
I got a bit concerned and I tried visiting the same website on a Mac laptop with an antivirus running. The anti-virus stopped me from visiting the page and warned me that it is a malicious/hacked website.
I would like to ask two questions.
1) Should I be concerned about my laptop's (which runs on Ubuntu without an Anti-virus) security at the moment? Is there a chance of mine getting infected?
2) Whether I got infected or not this time, what can be done to reducing the probability that next time, if I end up accidentally visiting a hacked website, I don't get infected?
