Did anybody else get a popup ad here on HubPages?


I was in the middle of writing a fan mail to a hubber I just followed, and a pop up ad appeared. Did HP get hacked or what?

    I noticed this too, why is this a constant thing?

    Thanks for your answer. This was my first time getting one. I had no idea this has been happening to others more frequently.

    I found that popup in edit mode quite annoying. Anywhere else would have been fine, but in edit mode it's annoying because I enter that mode to get work done.

    I think I'll run a scan when I go to bed tonight then. Thanks for the tip, Barbara.

    Same here. In fact, I actually altered my original question/comment and deleted the name of the company the ad referred to. If we give them some traffic, it'll just encourage them to pull this crap even more. Thanks for your answer.
