I mean, I don't get how you can insert viruses into a website that is made with a safe engine like Wikimedia. The popups I understand, but how do you actually write viruses into the source of the pages?

This website still has viruses!?
I barely see any popups. I'm not sure how ED contains malware. Kiwi Farms is malware-free, at least. But, I do know that three years ago, I used to gotten virus from Runescape Wiki of FANDOM.
The problem is not the site itself, but if they are ad supported, some of the ads may have viruses or malware. Not all ad companies are reputable, and even websites known for picking reputable ad services can occasionally have bad ones slip through the cracks once in awhile.
