Opened potential malware email attachment on phone

    Hi,

    I stupidly opened a potentially dodgy email attachment on my phone (it was from trusted source). My phone is a HTC running android KitKat. The attachment was a pdf but when I opened it it just generated a lot of code. I then looked at it on my laptop and realized its a pdf.scr file which looks like malware. :(

    My phone feels fine and I've installed Norton anti virus for phones which comes up clear but is there anything else I can do or need to do?

    Thanks in advance

    If you are truely scared you can do a factory reset. That will clear everything.

    I would think you are safe, though.
