    I downloaded a android game from a torrent site, Asphalt 8 Airborne v1.2.0 [MOD][MafiaSSS], it didnt work on my device and then i decided to run it on virustotal and it showed up with a virus called Trojan.AndroidOS.Ksapp detected by Ikarus av. Is this likely a false positive or should I be restoring my phone to get rid of it? I installed the Ikarus av on my phone and it didnt detect anything in a scan after I uninstalled it. I dont think I will be downloading from torrent sites again...

    Yeah, aside from the legality of downloading from places like that, malware is one of the big risks.

    If you've uninstalled, you should be fine. You might want to factory reset though, just to be on the safe side.
