I am getting this web page,titled "smart Site"
http://www.168077.com/12078/index.html on my Android Tab. Even After resetting to factory setting, it keeps popping up after some time.
After selecting any browser it redirects above link. Like This, After selecting any browser it redirects to the site titled "smartSite"


I am afraid if it is something like any hack ware or something, I don't know.
My tab also lags after opening this site

I am using BSNL PENTA T-PAD 83AAQ1 purchased from Amazon. Android Lolipop with 1 GB RAM.
Thanks. Sorry for bad English

  • Does the browser launches itself on its own (or even if you have to select a browser but you didn't do anything prior to it) with that website? Or, does that website is launched in a tab of any browser when you are browsing something? See related Q&A: android.stackexchange.com/a/178024/96277 – Firelord Aug 24 '17 at 17:37
  • Maybe DNS poisoning? Does other devices on that WiFi network opens same page in browser? – Једноруки Крстивоје Aug 24 '17 at 19:52
  • No, I am using SIM Card not WIFI, and even on the hotspot, no devices show such behaviour. – Rohit Jha Aug 25 '17 at 10:12
  • After Scratching my head for so many days, I got an idea which works. I hide all unwanted packages using adb shell pm hide "packagename". I think com.adups.fota was the culprit – Rohit Jha Sep 11 '17 at 18:32
  • This is seemingly an extremely stubborn malware, that probably came to my android device through play store. Even if I reboot my NO-root device into "safe mode", it persists. However I was able to remove it by a factory reset, at least apparently. – Always Confused Oct 20 '17 at 19:15
