    I opened a link from a google search and realized that the website was dodgy as I had been redirected to a site with a pornographic looking image. Immediately I exited the site by using the back button. This link which came up in the google search was not flagged with the warning: this site maybe hacked, but if I google searched the home page of that dodgy link then google flags it as potentially being hacked thus confirming the site was compromised. I subsequently deleted my web browsing cache, cookies and site data. My phone is running android 5.1. I have not noticed any changes to my phones general behavior, and have not seen any apps try to download on my phone, or seen any dodgy popups. Also I do not use any antivirus app. My question is my smartphone infected with Malware that is covertly active from opening a hacked website? Would the only way to confirm this be to download an antivirus app and let it scan the phone? Is there any other way to confirm malware infection?
