I dont think its WI. In the past few days, I've been looking at the Warriors Wiki (not WI) and I would try to go to another page in the Wiki. But then it'd send me to some site called Jump.

There is another thread running on this subject in the 'Somebody Help' section. A bunch of other people, including myself, have been having some problems today. You are not alone.

And it was about conserving water god forbid but it did this on my ****** computer, which it NEVER has done before. Ive never had ANY problems with WI before but then it happened a second and third time on the same computer! The window (WI) closing and then jump.com popping up!

But a few minutes ago.. I went to go post a vistor message for someone. When I went to their profile (**THIS WAS ON MY MAC(not the same computer as before(..SO IM KIND OF REALLY SCARED NOW..) an little box popped up saying "your computer is infected with a virus!"! Then, this anti spyware thing came up and I didnt even click anything! It started to download something but I exited it... Also, the box the download came up in was in the format of a PC computer (like that "Control Panel" box on a PC popped up on my Mac and it started downloading this anti spyware thing on there)..

Now.. is it safe for me to go on WI?

What do I do to my computer(s)?


UPDATE: I just checked the Apple website (www.apple.com) and clicked on "Mac", then "Why You'll Love A Mac". Then, I was reading and it says:
Doesn't get PC viruses.
Designed with security in mind, Mac OS X isn’t plagued by constant attacks from PC viruses and malware. Likewise, it won’t slow you down with constant security alerts and sweeps. Every Mac is secure right out of the box, so you can safely go about your work — or play — without interruption.
NO WAY!! MY COMPUTER IS DOING THE SAME!!! I WAS GOING TO OPEN UP A THREAD - I'm using a different browser now, but it still has the same effect!! My dad said it was a Spoof - I'm not so sure....

Okay, dude, I checked out the "SOMEBODY HELP!" section, and there is a bunch of help there. Here is what Admin pot up at the top http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...-cache-534364/ hth!!

I've gotten that "virus" message before, sometimes it's just a fake pop-up.
Also that happened to me with WI, I went to WI and then all of a sudden it re-directed me to a different website but It wouldn't allow me to go on it, it let me go back to WI, it said it was a "phishing" website or whatever.

Justin said he is working with the ad company and they are working on it, and stuff. Just to let you know, a WI2 subscription really helps because no ads appear, but I am not sure if you yourself can get one, good luck!

This should have been resolved this afternoon, according to the ad company, so I re-enabled it. Can you all confirm that you are still getting redirected as of this afternoon? If so, I need to start working with them again. It goes to jump.com?
