    Anybody know anything about VENDO?

    One of my WP sites is being attacked with Vendo PopUps for their companies.
    I did not authorize these ads. Does anyone have any info on them?

    The only Vendo that I am aware of is a manufacturer of vending machines for soft drinks.

    Have the host wipe the Wordpress install (but save the data). There's a lot of these that inject ads through template hacks.

    Also, make sure it's not YOUR computer. Try it on a phone or tablet to make sure it's the site, not the device. Just the other day I got hit by "Ads not by this site" which turned out I was hacked by adware through one of the extensions I enabled for Chrome.

      kschang- Looks like that happened to me. It even blocked me loading avast to clean things up. They replaced the avast install file with another packages install. I had to go in and delete programs that had just been installed before I could download.

    No but I'll Google it and see what pops up.  No pun intended Don.

      Frog Prince- Be careful, read my response to kschang.. This one took a little time to get rid of and I had to reset my Chrome settings to defaults among other things to clear this one from my PC. The insidious pricks started taking over everything.
