I recently got a pop up when I was visiting musictheory.com. The pop up blocked my browsing ability and said that a porn virus was stealing information and picture and that I shouldn’t restart my iPad and that I had to call a number for help. I was very skeptical but called the number. I immediately realized it was a scam and hung up. I found your website. What can I do? Or do I even need to do anything?
