    cloudfront.net

    Hi @Desertlabrat, This is most likely a form of browser related ads. This is caused by the way most browsers handle redirections executed by javascript code. Most browsers don't do a great job of preventing these redirects, which also cause ad pop-ups. Advertising affiliates are aware of this, and exploit this weakness. Even if an advertising affiliate is shut down for using this exploit, they just come back with a different affiliate id and are right back at it. The best way to block these pop-ups are to try a different browsers, disable javascript, install a browser with ad blocking (like Opera), and/or install Ad-block Plus. If you encounter these pop-ups again, back out of them using Android's back key. Also, clearing your history and cache will help stop the ads from reoccurring. Thanks for reaching out, Nathan

    Ransomware detected

    Hi @Macca86, Please see this thread: There is no risk, so you can either ignore or remove the file. Nathan
  4. Hi @Chernsha, Is the APK installed on your phone? Uninstalling will resolve any issues. It is a simple potentially unwanted riskware that can be used to send payments via SMS. However, it would need confirmation to due so, therefore the risk is low. Nathan

    Help please

    Hi @Bikuisi, Have you tried restarting your phone? Most likely this is due to a malfunction with software/hardware and not related to malware. Nathan

  10. Hi @henkka22, You are correct, if you root your device you can remove using ADB. However, this isn't something I personally recommend due to the potential damaging the device permanently aka "bricking" it. But hey, glad it all worked for you though! 😀 Nathan

  15. Hi @Question_asker, The notification is most likely stating that Chrome is clean via our Advance Anti-Ransomware scanner. Therefore, no cause for concern. Nathan
