What on your phone told you that? Was it a message from someone, a message from an application, etc?

no thanks my mc afee did not find any thing
Network Technician: Jason Jones, Network Technician replied 6 months ago

No thanks? What are you saying, "no thanks" to?

I asked you what exactly told you that it was being attacked. It sounds like it may have just been a scammer or spyware item trying to fool you into thinking it was being attacked.
