My Website Hosted with WA Got Infected

Last Update: August 24, 2018

This is very frustrating to handle!

I never expected this is going to happen believing that Wealthy Affilaite servers are secured.

I learned about this issue a day ago when a Facebook friend chatted me after he learned that I'm an affiliate here at WA.

To make the story short, I wanted to send him the link of my WA review so I didn't have to explain to him via chat. Unfortunately, when I tried to visit my site to copy the URL, a black screen appeared with a moving white arrow and a button, with a caption as you can see on the screen shot below.


That black screen flickers and I noticed that the URL is different and also changing per seconds.

A person trying to access my website would really think it's a sort of computer virus. It depreciates the credibility of my website.

I already contacted SiteSupport, but it seemed they can't fix it immediately. They said they are looking into it.

It's very frustrating that some of my website visitors are experiencing this issue as reported from visitors in the Philippines and Kuwait. I can't imagine this happening at the moment when I'm running Facebook ads to drive traffic to my website.

SiteSupport suggests to try opening it in different browser. I used Safari and Chrome already but the same thing happens intermittently.

In addition, someone asked me if I have installed a plugin lately after this happened, but I didn't.

The issue here is that why does it appear? I felt like all the effort I did to develop my website has gone to waste if SiteSupport can't fix this. I don't know until when I'll wait for this to be resolved and I certainly hope this will not happen to any website hosted here in WA.

With the amount we are paying with WA and encountering this problem can really, really be so terrible.

Should you be so kind to try accessing my website, bisayanginvestor.com, please let me know if the issue is replicated and the browser you used.

Oh, now i know.

I have the same problem with my Chrome. Sometimes when opening new tab my previous tab closes and some ad opens.

It is really annoying.

It’s not an ad. The same screen reappears that black screen as shown above.

Thank you. I really don’t know when and how it occurs. I thought it is resolved until someone reported to me again.

Thank you for the compliment. :)

Sorry to hear this.

I am sure the the support center will do their best to correct it.

I am a little afraid to click your link because I have had viruses in the passed and had to purchase new computer because of it. So will pass on this.

Keep us updated on the outcome.

Thanks! I really hope so the soonest. They asked me to try different browsers.

I guess it isn't the right solution.
