Complaints of virus on my article

    Some people on Facebook are complaining of weird pop-ups on my HubPages article. I presume they are viewing it on their phone:

    "Kept getting various questionable popups trying to read article. Won’t try again!"
    "Your file has a virus attached"

      @melbel, Hey, that sounds familiar. I was emailed a jpeg attachment from a hubber and the next day, my laptop was seized by a big virus and it cost me some real money to get it fixed. Beware!

      Did you also email staff? Sounds like a rogue ad, and if it's on your hubs it could be happening to others as well.  Sorry that happened - that stinks.

    It may be an ad, but I'm wondering if it's a phone malware issue or something related to facebook. I often get some weird stuff popup when I visit a website off of facebook (and only on my phone.) I'm wondering if something is wrong with facebook links or people's phones. I don't know. :S
