I visited a page to stream a TV show, and upon clicking the search result link got the following pop-up:

Here is a picture of that file:
I didn't open the
.dmg file or click on it at all. Instead, I immediately went to my downloads folder, deleted the file, and then emptied my trash.
I then went to see my downloads on Chrome; the URL seems to be something like
www.makeymcmacface.com/prod/... (which Google indicates belongs to the Mac.Trojan.Genieo.33 type of adware).

.dmg file, but don't click on it to install it, am I safe? Or is there a possibility that by simply visiting a website that auto-installs a
.dmg file, I could have compromised my security?
