Accidentally went to a drive by site
Hi all, I play the Java MMO Runescape, and have been going to some fansites to read up on how to make money ingame etc.
I went to one which (from it's url via google) claims to be a merchanting site (making ingame money from buying low selling high).
However, when I clicked it, it loaded a fake Java applet and asked me if i wanted to run it.
I clicked cancel and closed the page.
Now, having done a bit of googling I'm now aware of these so called "drive bys" that download files pretending to be Java if you choose to Run from the applet. None of the sites I've visited however tell me what happens if you click cancel, they don't say if you're still infected or not.
So to sum up, if anyone has any experience of drive bys, can you please tell me, if I didn't click "run" on the applet, am I safe?
P.S, sorry if this is indeed the wrong forum, but it seemed like the best place to post it
