Some random ads were randomly lauching on my phone (even vids while playing Growtopia!) and i couldn't find what they were from, i uninstalled some apps i don't use anymore and still had the same problem
Installed some "anti-virus" apps (antivirus are useless on phones... but i did it still)

Browsing my apps i randomly came across this

94171

Why was a "system.process" app in the DOWNLOADED apps categories?
I was able to remove it and the ads stopped.

So yeah becareful where you travel on the web, especially when you are browsing cracked apps and get redirected to crap websites such as onclickads.net.

I still wonder how that fake thing appeared on my phone.
It never prompted me to install any such thing.

Same thing happened to me, I downloaded a app called Transparent lockscreen. Then decided to play growtopia. Ads came every 30 seconds. Got it off though :rolleyes:

Or maybe downloaded something off the internet, never doing that again. :whistling:

Nice catch. I wonder how many other people would've noticed that system.process does not belong in downloaded.

Hah by the way Avast for android didn't detect crap
Same for AVG
Same for Ad Detectors that crashed everytime while scanning the app list at the same exact number
