The problem with today’s mobile devices is that there is a constant library of malware itching to infect your system. Hackers, at least the really good black hats, are able to get unsuspecting users to click on malicious links. The links have really improved in terms of their authenticity of visual representation, and unless you study key elements like file names or URLs, it can fool anyone. Such is the case with a new malware that is attacking Android users. As reported by welivesecurity, the malware Android/TrojanDownloader.Agent.JI utilizes a fake Adobe Flash download notice as shown in the below image:

i've read that Intego researchers report that third-party apps they have seen being installed by the fake Adobe Flash update include MegaBackup, ZipCloud, and MacKeeper.
