Candy Crush Crushing Your Android
We've been getting some complaints that while users are browsing on their mobiles the play store opens and prompts them for a download of Candy Crush Saga.
We took this problem to our advertising partner because we thought it likely there was a problem with one of the ads being run on N4G.
The conclusion is that this is not a problem caused by N4G, NewsBoiler or the ads currently running on the network. There is malicious code that Android users are running into that infects Android devices and makes it seem like the problem is from websites they are surfing.
