    I was interrupted by a vibration alert while searching for mp3 download, it said my device was corrupted by malware. '360 security' app was suggested by google and i immediately downloaded it and scanned my device. Trojan in rom was detected and the 360 app suggested to force stop android services app for temporary reduction in risk but what should i do to thoroughly remove it?

    No offense intended but you're the type of person those pop-ups target. Knowing what you have on your device and what you're clicking on is one of the best defenses against malware. Unfortunately, the pop-up itself was the cause of the malware. Any time you see one, back out of the app, force stop it and clear data for that app (from apps in Settings). The quickest, most direct, route is probably a factory reset.

    If you were looking for free MP3 downloads of songs you would normally pay for, that's a high-risk activity, one that's likely to infect whatever device you're using.
