Hi, this was auto downloaded to my Samsung S3 last night:




I have no idea want it is, it appears to have a dropbox icon but it isn't in any of my dropbox folders
and when I went to mobile.gizamobile.com it is just a blank webpage with the words "mobile.gizamobile.com is up!"

Anybody have any ideas about it, is it a threat?

Thanks in advance.

I would imagine that some website you browsed to started an auto-download for you, any site that does that is probably not going to be trying to help you out. I'd delete it just in case you do manage to run it and it does something nasty.

A WhoIs on that domain shows that it's registered in Malaysia and they've tried hiding their contact email address. Delete it.

Looks like a Java app for a feature phone (not Android, not iOS, not...etc). 

You can't run it. Just delete it...or save a copy on your PC so you can be curious about it at some other time when convenient. :-)
