Default Answered: I keep getting hacked while on here

I think I might be getting hacked or something.
For the past couple of days while I'm just on here, I get taken to another site and here is what just came up on the screen
"Reported Attack Site!
This web site at sweetlemongrass.com has been reported as an attack site and has been blocked based on your security preferences.
Attack sites try to install programs that steal private information, use your computer to attack others, or damage your system.

It is not itself but the ads and pop ups on WI. The only reason they are on WI are to fund it and keep it going. What virus protection do you have? Some make it really easy to fix these sorts of problems.

NOTE: Webkinz Insider does NOT have Pop Up advertisements. If you see a pop up while you are on WI (and you don't have any other sites open), please run a virus scan ASAP. Your computer might have malware on it. --FIA

While your on WI? that can't be good. i'd contact justin about it!

if you have adblock or pop-up block it should be fine. purchasing WI2 with WI bucks or for 5 dollars would prevent that to

I have had 4 similar messages today on this site. I keep getting a pop-up message that I need to download an anti-virus program, and then I get booted off line. I have Norton downloaded already, and have done scans every day. It's just annoying, but a real virus never shows up.

Its probably one of those advertisements from a sponsor or something. Just make sure your popup blocker is working and you run a virus scan. Also, deleting your cookies might help, too

Default Re: I keep getting hacked while on here

Yes, it is because of the ads. If you want to avoid this problem, I would suggest saving 50,000 WI Bucks, or paying for a WI2 subscription. I have one, and I have been FINE on here

That's not good, it happened to you on WI? It is probably because of the ads on here, though it's never happened to me yet.

Was it a fake virus scan?

Default Re: I keep getting hacked while on here

I didn't click on the pop up at all. I just went to my own anti-virus program and ran a scan. nothing came up.
When I had my 'Insider Insider' subscription, I didn't have any of these things, so I know it must be the ads. I'm saving up again to renew that.
