    No other apps are open and I haven't loaded anything recently.

    Great now maybe someone can uninstall just Pandora and see if the problem goes away and if it does not move onto Netflix. This way perhaps we can find the culprit

    Always download from trusted sources like Amazon or Google Play Store.. Other sources may bundle other crap into the installer, you never know.

    Please help me, I keep getting the pop ups every 30 seconds or so. I have run scans, restarted my phone, and nothing has helped. This happened before and by the next day the pop up stopped coming, but it has started up again. Anyone have a suggestion?

    Look at details of questionable apps. Downloaded/installed/updated within the 24hrs before it happened.

    No virus app will pickup the app as a virus because it is within the access granted.

    If you have battery pro like one person mentioned it should show up on the battery drain apps list.

    You should be able to find it under the battery feed possibly too.

    had the issue once before on my wifes ( stock S2 with 4.1.2 Tmo) phone and used lookout ad network detector to find draw free was causing the issue.
    I started getting this same pop up yesterday on my S2 that is rooted and ROM'd with Embryo 6.11

    here is the full link:
    bunged the http with spaces...
    h t t p://www.androidsecurityfree.org/v3ed/index.html?version=locked-suite&wwd=2&page=aa.lbi.special.v3ed&split=aa.us.0 7122013.v3eb.14b&ccrule=1e9f7fdf.c&offer=aa.us.071 22013&product=anti-virus&partner=nb&country=us&language=en&pool=aa.07 122013.new&pop=0&affid=184772&subid=o&subid2=OjU6N Dg6MTY6MrVsQZ9_8Q747KBLioj3L3xZ6h8DKwK7ynFmuh2dyik mmROoSKAwVASq7qFPVjjKzyZjABQjt8xMl_PIgCuG2w&shortc ut=aausnb&ipcc=us&iprc=az&xsid=SNRklknndU-l7yBteLRQ0w&ccconfigid=95ea3421.799

    ran ad network detector and it hit on superbackup, removed ,problem persisted, also
    ran Addons Detector, Airpush Detector, and Notification History .
    none of these find anything.

    THOUGHT it was the stock browser so i deleted it and installed Chrome, which seemed to alleviate it, then an hour later it popped up in chrome.
    lookout cant find anything.

    any thoughts?

    not that i was a ware of.
    following the popup fiasco, my phone experienced the "talkback" bug whein "talkback" was activated even though it was off and it got progressively worse and worse to the point hat i couldn't use it.
    I wiped it and reinstalled a new ROM.
    if the pop up returns ill post back.

    ok...something is up for sure. I wiped my phone and reflashed a stock ROM that was debloated and deodexed etc.
    Its been working fine for days suddenly today the same popup appeared, this time its green.
    WHAT is going on, i havent installed anything...
    EXCEPT swiftkey 3
    uninstalled and watching, no popups so far..

    Had this on my kids Kindle Fire.. same problem as everyone else. first www.fbsvu.com opens in a tab then redirected to the www.androidsecurityfree.org.

    Tried Airpush - nothing found. Tried WebrootSecureAnywhere Mobile that found an app called "Earn to Die" - Deleted App. problem persists. Going to try and delete Pandora and any other app that the others mentioned.

    Will repost results later

    It keeps popping up every 5 seconds and interrupts whatever app I'm currently using. I've tried every suggested AD scanner app, restarted phone, deleted updates and no results. When I thought it was gone, It would come back.

    I've deleted almost every app on my phone.

    smh....

    Below is the link to what comes up when you do a Whois search for the domain. Lots of hidden information, which just smacks of a malware author.
