    Device model:
    Samsung galaxy j3 prime
    Operating System and Version:
    android 7.0
    Super User:
    No
    Infection date and initial symptoms:
    Started Oct 18. When I went to an asian porn site, ads started popping up, one of them being this 'Porn droid' site, the content on that site was very disturbing, bit I was in incognito mode so i thought once i swiped it away, BAM it would gone forever, but nope now all sites that host third party ads (even nonporn ones) have these ads that open a new tab to this site.
    Current issues and symptoms:
    hijacked third party ads, sites that host third party links to watch shows as in putlocker ect, now have these ads on screen all about asian women, (I tried the same sites on another phone and they werent there) and when trying to play videos on these sites, it eventually leads to one of these porndroid ads to pop up.
    Steps taken in order to remove the infection:
    Tried deleted cache, history, ect downloading Avast, factory data reset,
    Visited an asian porn site, and then started getting these 'porn droid' ads showing very extreme content. It seems to stick to all third party ads and not even a factory data reset stops it. Ive been pulling my hair out trying to figure whats happening, according to my research the 'Porn droid' virus is well known for being a hijacking fbi scam, but to my knowledge theres noone else whos experienced this specific behavior from this 'porn droid' eg getting recurring ads to actual gross porn (bestiality and other nasty stuff) Could it be a new one? I dont think i downloaded any app accidently that could do this, and since it first popped up on that asian porn site im pretty sure thats where i got it.
