So just today I started seeing an advertisement (for a certain brand of car) on the top half of my lockscreen. Not happy. I didn't even download any apps today so I'm not sure what could have caused this. Is this malware? Anyone? How do I fix this?

Ok, good. Lookout's Ad Network Detector is separate from their Security app, so give it a whirl.

Lookout Ad Network Detector is free, as is the basic Lookout Security App. You have to pay to get their full Security App, so they make money from that. I'm sure they have other revenue streams. Lookout is pretty well-respected.
