We visited a Sochi-Olympic-themed site and were redirected to another, which prompted us to download an app (avito.apk) that seemed to have relevant travel information. After downloading the .APK file (MD5: 6d6cb42286c3c19f642a087c9a545943), we were prompted to install it. We clicked “Accept” because we believe that’s what typical users would do.

Maybe it is what typical users would do, but that they would is terrifying!
