There is a lot of chatter on the deal sites right now about a possible computer virus on coupons.com. Many people are reporting that while using coupons.com, a new browser window or pop-up appears and indicates it is AVG anti-virus software. The real AVG software is a legit anti-virus sofware BUT this is not the real thing. It appears to be a virus pretending to be anti-virus software so you will click on it. It then instructs you to scan your computer by clicking the button on the screen. DO NOT click the button. Once the button is clicked the virus is "unleashed" and it is causing a number of problems for people. This morning, I received an e-mail from a Smart Shopper who thinks her computer was infected while searching for coupons on coupons.com a couple days ago.
There is no official word from coupons.com on their website but I have left a message with the PR department and will update when more information is available.
