Default malware attached to links

I copied a link from my photo albums here and sent to a few friends. one got a phishing pop-up when they clicked the link and had Norton block it as malware attack on his computer. I share with them on a regular basis for over a year and this was the first time that happened. Any other reports of this or a fix in the works?

We never allowed/pushed any malware, might be coming from some ad company, but in order to track it we need to know links of the ad they got? or what banner did they click on?

can you please get more information so we can resolve it asap?

below is a screenshot of the pop-up they received when clicking a link from one of my photo albums. These were the links.

No banners were clicked, only the links.

When I click on the photo I just uploaded it takes me directly to the same screen with this url:

https://performlatest-thegreatlyfile...8&sid=14932875

I've checked other websites and opened photos and have not received any pop-ups

This is very strange, as we have no complaints from no one at all, so i tend to believe maybe your computer has some malware on it, and it randomly pops on our site. since if it was a global scenario it would been now filled with complaints from people. we checked our codes many times and we did not add nothing that is even suspicious.

Try to run some antimalware on your pc just for testing purposes.

P.S: the guys who do get the malware where are you from? maybe they target specific countries?
