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.

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

Aggressive is an euphemism
