I keep getting this pop up warning and page redirect when ever I am in the middle of using the internet with safari. "Warning!
On your computer detected the malicious code.
Should immediately make sure that your system is safe! Killing Hazard
for Microsoft Windows XP immediately started to work"
When I try to close it, it starts to scan. What can I do to fix this?

My 3rd gen touch has updated driver and popup
Blocker is on. Thanks!

That's the thing. It is not site exclusive. It happens when I open safari and type in an address. It happened while I was pulling up this forum. It hAppens when I pull up hotmail or google or other sites... It's like the iPod is infected with something. Is that possible?

No. Do you have any other tabs open?

No. Not usually. What happens is the virus warning pops up and then opens a new page with the download advert

Here is a snap shot of the pop up

That's delicious ;)! It's a Kind of Javascript-Redirector Fake-Antivirus. Just turn off JS and you should be fine. Eventually will need to reboot or close down safari.

Does it happen in other apps that let you browse the web?

It might be your network- does any other laptop/computer connected to the same wireless network have the same problem?

It's your network, hence the IP in the address bar. It infected your router, and it forcing random redirects.

Does it do that in Safari too? Looks like the screenshot is in Facebook

It happens when I am using safari to load pages but not a direct app.

That wad facebook opened via safari not the app. It happens when I open any site, but not every time.

Yes it does happen with other computers as well on my network. Router, huh?

How do I fix that?

Yep, it's the router.

Try resetting it.

If your router is infected you might need to reinstall the firmware.

But try resetting it first. Disconnect the power-plug for a couple of minutes (1-2). If this doesn't help, you could try a factory-defaults-reset, all settings will be gone! You'll need to reconfigure at least your ISP-Login-Data.
