Virus through WiFi router/Modem?
This question is not particularly directed at the laptop listed, but at all the devices in my house. I was wondering whether or not it is possible for a virus to be transferred over a WiFi network through the router/modem. I've done a little bit of research and have found that worms are very possible, although very improbable. The only reason I ask is because I have recently gotten a few pop-ups on my laptop (Macbook pro) and desktop (Imac), claiming that I needed to call a "toll-free number" that led to optimum (which is my internet provider) tech support. They didn't hold my computer hostage, but it scared me nonetheless and made me wonder if something was infecting my WiFi. In addition to that, I will be purchasing a new Macbook pro soon and I wanted to make sure that my WiFi was clean, and that nothing would infect it, before I got it.
as a side note, I have viewed sketchy "adult" sites that may have caused this virus
