    I guess my phone is somehow infected by this appflv malware. I’ve never visited the site but keep getting a pop-up that automatically redirects me to the webpage when I use Google Chrome. Any idea how I am supposed to remove this?

    For me it is still unclear from where this pop-up is activated. I think the only way to be certain is to remove applications from your device which you have recently installed..

    Phone received a new motherboard, so it was clean a week ago (Android 5 on S4)
    I installed:
    Coindozer and Coindozer Seasons
    Galaxy Chargong Current *Free*
    CSR racing
    Strava
    Beep&go

    I already have this message again… like I did before the boardswap on Android 4.
    So assuming it is from an app, then those are likely suspects.
    I hope I didn’t overlook an installed app and am pointing fingers at the wrong apps…
