    I noticed today i started see allow spaming push notifications alerts on my blog. I didn't create any push notifications or know how this happened, i guess this is a adware virus and a plugin might be the culprit.

    How do i disable this push notifications, it keep sending messages to my users every 5 minutes.

    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    I think the only way is to find the source (in this case it's most likely the plugin) and uninstall it. If this does'nt help, make a website copy and try finding the virus. In any case: Install a virus protection plugin, to be safe for the future!
