[Q] Android Trojan(s)?
Ok, I've never seen this or had this issue before. So I am not sure what is causing it.
I installed my usual apps after flashing Mr. X's stock+root-CIQ Tmo T989 rom.
First app I usually download and run before anything is Adfree. Then Astro file manager to restore APKs. But I realized that this method left me with some older versions of the apps and they wouldn't have their market links. Yes, I could run Titanium Backup to fix them..
Anyways, suddenly I get a star icon on my notification bar. I look at it and it sends me to a website claiming I won a tablet and to chose.
This is one of the links, don't visit it
, I just posted it for reference;
So I decided to wipe and flash again and go through the same process to see if perhaps catch who's the culprit..
It happens again this time with a plus icon..
The star icon has happened twice on different occasions, only in the last week, and after installing a recent update to Adfree.
These are the apps I have installed;
AT&T Smart Wi-Fi
Bloat Freezer Free
Ubuntu Regular TTF
Has this happen to anyone? Any idea what's causing this or how to catch / prevent it?
I've had one app actually hijack my my stock browser and change the search engine to some smartsearch type site, like it does to normal windows browsers.. lol
