Well it does. only thing was open was WI and WW. When the fake security poped-up, it closed WI and not WW...... I'm a kid so I don't know what the sence with that was

I'm very annoyed to hear that WI has dangerous ads, I've always thought of it as a "smoothened" place- totally up-to-date on everything, except for the bad stuff. I haven't had any problems yet, mainly because I usually browse from my iPod, which seems to be harder to infect with a virus than a typical computer (and as far as sound ads go, I have my speakers turned off when I ocassionally go on my desktop to upload pictures, ect.) (Another possible reason why I haven't found anything is that my dad is a computer guy...xD) A particular anti-virus software i recommend is Anti-Malware. We also have a web filter called "K-9 Web Protection" installed, and while it blocks sites like dA, YouTube, and Facebook, it's been blocking almost every single ad WI has, and I believe that's why the computer's virus-free.
Hopefully Justin & the other founders will be able to fix this soon!

Webkinz Insider does not have "pop up" or "pop under" advertisements. If you see an advertisement like this while you are viewing Webkinz Insider, please run a virus scan on your system ASAP as this is an indication that you probably have some sort of "malware" on your system.

If you ever see an advertisement on Webkinz Insider that concerns you, please contact a member of the staff so that we can verify whether or not it is coming from Webkinz Insider and, if necessary, take action to remove the ad from the site.

Default VIRUS ON WI!

I just logged into WI and got a "threat blocked" popup from my antivirus software. Somebody has put a virus on WI! Everyone be on the lookout, don't open any popups that are blocked by your browser, and make sure your antivirus software is up to date. I'm not sure if it's mods, admins, or someone else who is in charge of removing viruses, but whoever it is I hope is told soon and gets it off.

I've gotten it in the past too. My antivirus actually said it was coming from WI so they can't say it's my computer.
