Question [Q] Ads.bin file auto downloading in chrome for android

Sometimes when I am using google chrome ads.bin file auto downloads on my phone. It seems like the problem occurs on very different web pages (happened here on xda too). I already checked my phone with avg and malwarebytes but nothing showed up. Is anyone else having the same issues or has any info about that?

EDIT: Okay, I discovered that Chrome automatically saves .apk files as .bin files (security related?). So .apk file is actually trying to get on my phone. I found a verry similar issue here, but without any real explanation: forums.androidcentral.com/htc-one-x/210532-url-bin-download-finished-what.html
