Need some help with my paranoia about drive-by download


So recently I clicked on a wrong link in Google search, which is most certainly a phishing website. Despite that and having several ad blockers running and even checking later for any malicious scripts with a script disabler, i am still pretty paranoid about a drive-by download (I’ve done nothing except entering the website).

After checking the link with a Malicious link checker 8 out of ~60 AV’s found this website malicious. (here is the screenshot of the info: [https://imgur.com/lGGpeJF](https://imgur.com/lGGpeJF) )

I run multiple checks with different AV’s: WinDefender, Malwarebytes (with rootkit search) and Hitmanpro. I checked netstat in cmd for suspicious connections, since i was concerned about a keylogger.

I know that there is always a *possibility* of my pc having gotten malware, but i want to ask you if it is *probable* that even after all those steps I took, I may have gotten a drive by download.
