    Hi, earlier today on my moto g, i accidentally clicked a photo from a google photo search. The picture was on this site: imgkid .com. I was immeditaly redirected to some onclickads .com ****, and a message from website popped up with the text: "There is a update available for XT1068 (My phone) ,Download now?". There was also a OK button attached to the message. I rapidly closed the side and the pop-up messages. I cleared all chrome browser data, also cookies. Ran 360 Security antivirus, scan, and boost. Can i have gotten some malware, adware, nasty plugin's or something like that, from that?? Things like browser and general user experience seems normal. No unusual lags or anything...
    A little info:
    Moto G XT1068
    Runs 5.0.2 no root, no untrusted sources activated. Chrome is up-to-date. Ran 360 Security app after it happened, nothing detected.
    Edit: pretty sure it was a annoying ad, nothing else than some scareware.....

    Extremely unlikely. Annoying link to ads, with no permanent malware, is far more common.
