Default Mobogenie apk downloading automatically?

Hey there,

I recently noticed that on some sites I visit with my phone (like versus.com) a popup message appears saying 'mobogenie - play now' with a cancel and ok button. I pressed cancel then the popup appeared again. So I pressed cancel once more. Then the browser redirects to an ad site where it automatically downloads the mobogenie apk. Do I have adware/spyware on my phone? Or is it the website itself? I tried using the stock samsung browser as well as chrome but the same thing happened.

Propaganda has to be popular to the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach.
Adolf Hitler

The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help."
Ronald Regan

If you wish to succeed in the world, promise everything, deliver nothing.
Napoleon Bonaparte

The most dangerous man to government is one able to think... Almost inevitably he concludes that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable.
H. Mencken

Okay I read that thread just now but I don't see a solution yet. Maybe I need to get ad blockers.
