yOUR SYSTEM IS HEAVILY DAMAGED BY fOUR VIRUS!
« on: December 09, 2016, 11:23:28 AM »
I was googling on my Samsung mobile s6 and suddenly up came the above statement (it had a reference "tdn3otesqe.pw").  It wanted me to click on a link to get it fixed.  I did not click on it but I powered down my mobile, restarted it and did Avast scan, nothing was found wrong.  I do some messaging etc on my mobile and up comes the strange message again, I power down and this goes on ad infinitum.  I cannot get rid of that message.  Has anyone experienced this?  With thanks, from Les.

Many times the pop-up is some javascript code in your browser. On Mobile it can be hard to tell this. Clear your browser cache in settings and see if that helps.

Its important to note that this isn't actually a virus, more a phishing style attack, which is why Avast finds nothing

And when in doubt if the phone is infected or not, you can always reset it to factory defaults.
