I got a brand new HTC One a day ago, was on this site and I got a popup saying something along the lines of
"Your android has a virus press ok to delete it" with the options of Cancel and Ok.

I did press Cancel cause I thought it was a fake popup, but I do have Lookout installed and the lookout site scanners says that I've visited 22 sites, and 21 were safe so there was 1 site that I visited that was unsafe I guess, but is there anyway for me to see the sites scanned on Lookout?

I do not believe the 'virus' came from xda developers, or maybe I don't have one at all but I am paranoid about these type of things.

I did do a Lookout scan and it said everything was fine..

Will a factory reset do the trick incase I do have a virus? Or will I need to reformat?

Thanks.
