Hi - thank you in advance to all who take a look and help me out with this issue.


Over the past 2 weeks I've had unusual popups invading all devices on my network (including iPhones, iPods, Laptops, Desktops, etc.). These popups occur only within an internet browser. (See the attached photos)


Because the popups occur on all devices on my network, I'm wondering if there is something going on with my router. Could it have been infected with a virus of some sort? Or, is it possible that I have a port open on my server?


I also have run MalwareBytes, CCleaner, etc. on my machines but with no luck.

I believe that I've solved the issue!!!

I forgot that I had set up a dynamic dns service on my server (through noip.com). Unknown destructive traffic was coming though the port that was opened by the dns software. I disabled the software, thus closing the port to through traffic, and the popups stopped!
