Default [Q] Spam app?

I don't know what to call the type of app but something is putting a notification on my phone that says 'update: touch to download shikaku madness'. I have not downloaded it but I cannot figure out what app is causing this to show up. Is there an app that can detect this or show what is going on?

You can stop the notification of that app.
Go to Settings > Applications > Manage Apps , then go to that app and untick the 'receive notifications' option.
You can also check the permissions given to that app and can guess if the app is misusing.

Press thanks if i helped.
