    Default Odd website in Chrome, possible malware on LG Nexus 5?

    Hi,

    Yesterday I opened Chrome and noticed some pornsite I hadn't opened was open in a tab. I don't recall clicking on an ad by accident or doing anything else that could've opened a site in Chrome, haven't installed any apps outside the Play Store etc. so I'm curious where that came from.

    I haven't installed a virus scan, but I'll do so in a minute and run a scan. I'm pretty sure my Android is up to date.

    As someone who's new to Android and easily paranoid I'd like to know a few things, all answers are greatly appreciated.

    1. What could've caused this site to open, other than me clicking an ad by accident
    2. Is running a virus scan sufficient, and what virus scan would you recommend
    3. How can I find out if my phone has been infected in any way
    4. Should I do a soft reset, hard reset or nothing of the kind

    Thank you so much in advance, I'm a bit worried about this.

    One thing you ought to do, I think, is report it to Google:
