Where there are a variety of malicious activities, the majority we have seen are around fake antivirus software and spam. As you were viewing this on your smartphone, it seems unlikely it would have been affected (there’s a lot less malware for these types of devices than, say, PCs), however, it probably would be a good idea to check it with an anti-malware program specific to your smartphone’s operating system.

If you accessed any sites which require credentials like a username and password to login after attempting to view the site, it would be a good idea to login to those sites from your personal computer and change the password on them.

Regards,

Aryeh Goretsky

I accidentally clicked it on my phone.  :(
