I was hoping that you could help me with an issue I'm having with my kindle fire HD
I was surfing reddit/r/superman yesterday. I cliked on a link, it took me to an external website. Once I got there
I immediatley got a pop up message on my kindle telling me that I was infected.
It then asked my to click ok to continue (to install the malware I suspect).
I did not
click on the pop up box (or anywhere in it).
I took a screenshot, sent the image to myself on my email account (from the Kindle email app itself).
The error message/pop up image states the following = (I've just broken up the http in that link incase it was pointing to a real site)
The page at 'ht tp://mobilekd.com'
Thursady January 9 ALERT! Your Amazon KFTT is INFECTED. Please INSTALL to
I then downloaded the Bit Defender AV app for andriod/kindle and performed a scan. The scan came back clean.
However when I downladed the Bit defender App I was expecting it to download some virus definitions (like you'd expect, if you were on your PC), but it didn't. I thought that was a little strange.
Once I hade scanned the device. I turned off the wifi and then turned off the Kindle.
I'm about to factory wipe my Kindle.
What do you reccomend ? Am I being a little paranoid ? (I don't think there is anything wrong with a little healthy paranoia when you're dealing with computer security though).
I've not noticed any unusual activity on my Amazon app account today. (However, that's not really surprising as I've turned off the Kindle. So even if it had been infected it wouldn't have had much of a chance to do anyting yet).
I suspect it's just a scare-ware pop up. Has anyone else seen this, or anyting like this at all on thier tablet devices ?
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated ! TIA
