I don’t believe so, it was only in safari and every time I would click a new tab would pop up with some crap websites called Fissa.com. And tons of ads displayed on those websites which interrupt me and I cannot perform any activities online. How does it happen? I thought I must have clicked something wrong and some kind of malware should drop on my computer by accident when I watched a show online. I just restarted my computer, but it was still there after I tried to surf on the Internet. Could you guide me through the process of removing this malware?
