After a couple of clicks around theSamba on my phone, I'm getting the pop-up that says I'm infected. I've gone elsewhere through the internet and been infection free. I cleared the data things, came back to theSamba, and got the pop-up again. I'm using a browser called Dolphin.
If it's me, it's me, but it only happened here.

Sounds like a fake ad that is probably not from this site.

I've been using Android phones to view theSamba for 10 years and have never had any problems.

I have a recurring, similar problem when I view the LA Times website on my phone. A pop-up that says I am a lucky winner pops up, and it's damn hard to close. Never happens on ANY other website, and it happens even with a new phone and the latest software. They deny it's them.

I googled it and it's them. To fix it, it was recommended I clear Safari cookies and history. Unfortunately, it seems to be all-or-nothing on an phone, so I had to clear everything, and of course then had to re-enter login and other info for all the other sites I visit.

But it fixed it... for now... until that damn LA Times site or an ad on it strikes again. But you might try that.
