    I dont know much of coding work. from last 2 days , I'm seeing unknown sites opening up automatically, when i open my site Gomilitary.in

    I even contacted my host but they are saying that there's no problem from their end. What should I do know ? I even consulted a web developer friend of mine. he too says, he has no idea about this. Please help. I'm really fed up.

    It's not your site. You downloaded some adware

    Check the theme you're using, there might be code in there if you downloaded it from somewhere.

    The host wouldn't pick up on it, because it isn't malicious, it's just part of the code.

    Just did a scan with Sucuri SitCheck and it looks clean. I agree that it could either be malware on your computer or code embedded in your theme that isn't being detected as malicious as LakeForest said.

    Are you using a free WP template?
    Some people there offer free WP templates adding some cookie stuffing codes to the pages!

    same happens to my site and pop up starts arising resulting in increasing load time of my site and reducing the laptop speed.

    I am pretty sure its XSS... Check the comments, guestbook posts or whatever a user or visitor on your site may post for code (<iframe... or the like)!

    what kind of cms are you using?

    hey just checked your site,

    Nice wordpress Installation and nice theme,

    - iframe //nope
    - js //didnt check all ut seems legit

    now what i found was that the site opened a popup, which opened another site.
    i didnt saw any xss or something like that, disable some plugins and check it again laiter.
