'Critical Chrome update' scam from this site

I fairly IT savvy. I clicked on a link within the site, not an external ad. I got a page as follows..

Tempting as it was to install I decided ahfohconagrafoods.com probably wasn't at the top of my list of trusted sites.

A preliminarily scan hasn't showed anything untoward on the server. Do you remember what the link was that you clicked on?

If anyone else sees anything similar please let us know so we can see if there's any kind of pattern or if it was a one off. As ever with this sort of thing the more info you can give us the better.

Thanks
