You need to be MORE specific.  cloudfront.net  is a Domain, it is not malware.  Albeit, there are malicious web sites that are hosted on cloudfront.net

For example.  The following is a Microsoft based HTML.FakeAlert hosted on 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
