It's probably too new to find out. Maybe if you Google for some of
their previously used domain names you'll have better luck finding out.
Some other options:
1. Run a system auditing tool. I don't know of any good one, I only
found Lynis in the repository and it does not seem to be aimed at
detecting malware but more to detecting general security holes in your
system. Maybe other people know of better tools.
2. Install a fresh Ubuntu in a virtual machine, install some file
changes tracker like auditd, then go and visit that site and see what it
changes on your system.
3. Reinstall your system. This is no doubt the safest option, but also
the most drastic.
