Hey guys, got redirected over here from here (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/558631/russian-pop-up-virus/).

 

It's some sort of Russian pop up thing, most commonly to aviasales.ru , whatever that is. It's on both my iphone and computer in Chrome....kind of panicking since law school finals are in a week and I need this computer to pull through!

 

 

I've run Avast, Adware Medic, and ClamXav, and all is 'good.' Avast can't scan 63 files,  but not sure what that means. I'm at a loss for what to do!

Computer is running slowly, and popups getting worse.

 

The page says those are only for Windows, and I have a Mac running OS...

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
