iPhone Calendar Virus
Last week I went onto a movie site and I clicked the wrong thing and somehow ended up with this (photo attached) in my calendar. I know if I click on the link I’m probably doomed so I haven’t. there is no option for me to delete these events or edit the calendar subscriptions to them like you can with any other event or calendar. They’re just stuck there it seems and they pop up every day and won’t stop. I can’t mute the Event reminders and because it remakes or adds them in two day increments. I’ve looked Online for hours and nothing seems to help because it doesn’t let me delete anything. I don’t think it’s spam like most posts say to people because I cannot remove anything. Help

And the image that accompanied this report is as follows:

How did the so-called Calendar virus start appearing on your iPhone?

Infection with the Calendar virus can be caused by a malicious entry added to the installed calendar app. Other reasons include clicking on a link on a suspicious website; an unexpected browser redirect that activates the scam with the help of scripts; an unnoticed installation of adware or another potentially unwanted application. All methods enable the Calendar virus to affect your device without your knowledge.

Did you know? Sometimes you may authorize the installation of a profile on your phone without knowing that you agree to such a process. This may be the case with the endless, spammy calendar notifications. One thing you can do to fix the issue is to go to Settings -> Passwords & Accounts and check if a rogue calendar is listed under Accounts. If it is, then tap on it and Delete account. It is also good to check Settings -> General -> Profiles, and see if there is anything unusual listed there as well.

For the sake of your online security and data privacy, you should definitely scan your affected system with an advanced anti-malware tool to ensure that no PUPs are running on it. Specific instructions are included in the next paragraph.

Also, we have detected several websites that are spreading the Calendar virus. Here is a list which will be updated with new threats:
