    Hi hellojessieharlin,

    I just looked at my site and I have a virus popping up!!!!

    I’ve visited but haven’t been able to see any popups. Which device are you using when the pop-up appears?

    A screenshot of the ad would be helpful if you are able to send one:

    Please include as much of the page as you can and upload the screenshot to your Media Library.

    Does the ad appear when viewing a particular post or page on your site? Or when clicking on a link to your site from elsewhere like Twitter or Facebook?

    @lizzierunning — I haven’t been able to see any pop-ups on your site either it would also be great if you could reply with the same information :)


    Thanks Gemma. I have just uploaded the screen shots to my media library. The two people who reported the issue were both trying to access my home page. Both using iPhones in Australia, although one is a UK mobile and one an Australian one. Everything looks fine when I go on the site myself.


    Hello :) thank you Gemma, I’ve just uploaded a screenshot too. The site is though….. not sure if the Jessieartblog is the core or something.

    Hi thestoryofanni,

    I’ll reply here with an update as soon as I know more but I’m unable to give you a timeframe at the moment.

    I appreciate you are waiting for news, thanks for your patience.



    Just adding our site to this too. Had two users report the exact same issue just today. They both happened on iPhones. I’ll try get some screen shots if I see them again today. Thanks for looking into it.


    Hi edrictheatre,

    Thanks for reporting this. A screenshot uploaded to your Media Library would be helpful if you are able to get one.


    I uploaded a screenshot to my media library. It’s still happening.
