Virus ?
« on: November 23, 2012, 06:48:31 AM »
I cannot connect to the play store or some other links when I search anymore. It happens on Chrome and Firefox. I get error messages that look like this. This was when searching for Nexus10 and clicking on the play store link. Is it a virus?

Have you tried to clear the cache in Chrome?

Try an antivirus program, it may be a malware redirecting browser pages. Not too dangerous, unless it's phishing for passwords but annoying. Anyone else getting this?

Or it could be a server malfunction looks like clickserve is an ad site.

I got the same message, when I clicked on a link in an email from Google about Cyber Weekend Sale.

I would bet the clickserve server is down. Should clear up on its own. Doesn't hurt to scan for viruses although there haven't been many on android so far.......

Agreed.  I can't understand why you guys aren't filtering ads like those, though.

Is there a non-root ad blocker? I'd love that.

I think it is a Google server error, and we can look for its correction.

I defer to your judgement. Any reported instances of viruses to watch for?
