Did I accidentally allow a malicious site to force malwares or viruses on my pc?
This notification pops up and i accidentally added the the site to the list of exceptions thinking it was another false positive until i took a second look. Could I have accidetnally allowed a malicous site to do as it pleases with my PC?

does anyone know what revive adserver is? edge was trying to connect to a
domain that says it is revive adserver that got blocked by bitdefender.
i tried using virustotal to scan the site and no results come out as a
warning. is it just some ad stuff a site is trying to use that or could
it be a malicious site. The title of the site is
revive adserver, the ip address is in france (delivery.2d.net.co - Revive Adserver (ipaddress.com)). how do i check if my pc got infected (? how do i know if there were some hidden
downloads from the site not showing up in download history?
BTW I also cannot restore to an
earlier win 11 restore point as win 11 says the files cannot be accessed
likely due to antivirus. I tried turning off everything in bitdefender
and windows defender's real time protection and controlled folder access
and tried again the same message pops up. I was told my system files
might have been infected / corrupted. Is it possibly caused by
connecting to the site or is it likely a false positive and bitdefender
is either hoarding access to some files or caused some damage to files (
i know bitdefender and windows defender are known to cause save file
corruption / damage to dark souls savefiles. for example.)
should i do? should i do a full scan just in case i actually got
infected by malicious stuff? or could everything be a false positive and
the site i connected to was just an ad site?
