This pop-op shows up when I'm on the Campfire and totally locks up my screen. Only way to get rid of it is hit back button or close page. I've tried everything I can think of to stop it with no luck. I use an I-pad and only on the Campfire does this happen. Does this happen to anyone else? Any help or ideas?[Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]

Have you tried uninstalling McAfee? Says your subscription has expired so am assuming you're not using it.

I don't have McAfee and never have. That's why I think it might be a virus of some sort.
I did just switch browsers from Safari to Firefox and I'll see if that fixes the problem.

Next day edit; browser swap fixed it.

It happened to me as well last week on a NEW Ipad. I don’t think Mac can even use McAfee!

I get the same thing. Don’t have Mcafee and obviously this is some kind of virus or spam. I only gets this on the Campfire. Maybe the owner of this site can do something about this?

I’m getting it on iPad. Don’t have it. It’s some form of spam, and that’s not something posing as meat.

I run a MacBook and have McAfee installed and running and still get the same locked screen as shown above. My McAfee subscription has not expired which leads me to think this is a bad actor that has taken up residence in this website.
This really needs to get resolved and quickly.

I changed to Firefox but it followed me there.
