On my N4 i got 2 popups on XDA-Developers that said, i got a virus and my whatsapp subscription expires.
I'm not sure, because i skipped the warnings, but it seems like XDA is spreading malware.

Nothing to worry about, welcome to the world of advertisement. (it's just an advertisement, just don't click in it and all will be fine).
