You’re browsing the web and all of a sudden you get a pop-up that says you have won an Amazon gift card or maybe it says you have an infection on your phone.
How did this happen?
Don’t click on the links in the pop-up! It’s what is currently being called ‘malvertisting’! It’s an advertisement that contains malware.
What should you do?
Getting this pop-up does not mean you have a virus, however clicking on it will most likely download malware onto your phone!
Your best course of action is to stay calm and hit the X to close out the web browser session.
