    Surfing with Safari latest version, tried to go to the New Orleans Saints Web site and all of a sudden this crap pops up telling me to call this number to fix my problem.
    You can't do anything in Safari. I had to force quit to get out. And when I rebooted, the problems are still there. Anyone heard of this or have a way to get rid of this?

    I was able to stop it (for now) by uplugging my Ethernet connection (and/or wifi) and restarting safari. Type in apple.com and it couldn't reach it. Plugged it back in and it was gone (I hope) There is a lot of this going on, so be careful out there.

    • Force quit Safari
    • Relaunch Safari holding the shift key down

    Download and scan using a programme called Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac - this should fix any malware on your system - good luck. (I've been using it for years with Windows and is now available for Mac)

    I fixed this by using an AppleScript to close the tab, then use the enter key to get rid of the message.
