Say It isn't So. Losing Faith in the Android OS ?

I think this article jinxed me.  Every since I have known about this viruses attacking Android OS's my phone has been stating I have one when I browse !   I had never had a problem before this.   

Found out that I had a ancient version of Android on my phone 4.1.2 Jellybean if you can believe it. Which I have upgraded since yesterday to 4.3     I am still battling this virus that shows itself when I look at the only site that I use with my phone, to say I am upset is an understatement.

Is this the phone makers way of getting me to upgrade ?  I am so frustrated that the antivirus apps are not removing this - it is enough to have me almost consider an iPhone.   Almost.  

I am going to think about which way I turn over the weekend in the meantime the battle continues.

If anyone has a similar issue, please let me know how you regained your sanity.
