Is your website infected with a virus? Not quite!

22Nov
It is not uncommon to stumble upon a website that is filled with links that irritate us by showing random pop-ups when we hover over them, giving us unsolicited information and overall putting us off from continuing to explore its contents. Of course sometimes this information might be useful, but most of the times it is irritating, useless and overall annoying.
