Default [q] infected???

I JUST GOT REALLY SCARED NOW!

i was browsing a website with aosp (using Cyanogenmod) and as i switch pages to the second page i get this:

Android Warning
mobicorp kind of ad

saying that my samsung galaxy s4 is infected..

now i searched on google and webutation or something and webutation said that is was a clean site. it even is a antivirus for android.

and some people in a forum said that that is a way for antivirus programs to get users. is that true ? does that mean that my phone is not infected ?

Install one antivirus in ur mobile and make a complete scan. If ur phone is infected make a CLEAN installation of ur firmware and is all (wiping it all)

It is a trick to get you to install their app.

You phone is not infected.

Dont install what they are trying to promote.
