When people go to my Homestead site, Homestead tries to infect their computers with the Yontoo Layers virus, which creates big pop up ads!!!!!!!

My customers are running away, navigating away from my site immediately.

If this is not correct soon, I will have to close my account forever.

Hi Phillip8977,

Welcome to the community!

Yontoo Layers is not affiliated with Homestead in any way. It appears to be a browser add on which means anyone could have it installed on their internet browser(s).

I did a quick search and looks like it's linked to certain products, some including: Yontoo Layers Client, My Super Cheap, DropDownDeals, PageRage, Buzzdock, Super Profile, and Sanity Switch.

If you've added any 3rd party elements or html, that may be triggering the browser add on for those who have it installed, I'm not entirely sure.

I hope this information helps provide some clarity.

Thank you,
