Please help me. Every time I am using Safari on my Mac OS, I keep getting this get-user-id pop-up on the browser. The get-user-id text file is also appearing on my download folder as if I am downloading the file again and again while browsing the internet.
I really cannot recall that I have downloaded any files or apps that are causing this get-user-id sort of virus. On Safari, blocking any pop-up is active but I keep getting get-user-id pop-up when surfing the internet. One thing I noticed through that it is persistent whenever I am reading something MSN pages. Aside from get-user-id, there are other things that pop-ups on Safari that looks so suspicious. They are not usual ads but close relevant.
The same thing happened to my iPhone when viewing pages on MSN. Though it appears differently on the mobile device. It shows a message “Do you want to download “get-user-id” then there is a Download button.
Can someone please tell me if get-user-id on Safari is a virus? Why I am getting this all of a sudden and how to I stop it?
