Getting spammed

Recommended Posts

Have been getting spammed from today by this website:

Is this a false positive? my scans find nothing and it pops up from any site I go to even this one.

I have premium and its up to date, started happening from 8pm when I turned my pc on.

Poperblocker is a popup and popunder blocker extension for chrome and firefox, and it does a great job of it.....but apparently it and other extensions have been spying on us so mbam now blocks them. I was toying between just adding it to ignore and getting rid but I figured there's probably something similar out there that has the benefit of not secretly collecting my personal and private data.

 

It's not a huge problem, just remove it and find another (adblock plus for ads and popups, but not popunders :() or add it to the list of "stop annoying me about it" things in the malwarebytes settings

Yeah just read up on it, sad really. I use ublock for adds, I hope that doesnt start collect data. What gets collected just my page history?
