  • My wife found a Speed Dial entry for BreakingNews on her Android Opera browser that she said led to a bunch of sex related content. (I never saw it. I just removed the entry.) I thought she may have so sort of malware on her phone, so I ran several AV scans. Nothing was found. I then found the exact same entry in Opera Mini. I deleted that entry too and deleted the browser history. I also cleaned the phone with CCleaner. Later, I found the exact same entries in both Opera and Opera Mini on my Nexus 4. What's up with BreakingNews? Is this something that was supposed to be legit?

  • I found the same thing with Opera for Android on both my and my wife's tablet, and Opera for Android beta on my tablet. Google searches on URL of SD icon bring up references to Opera media. I think Opera may be doing it.

  • To clarify my previous message, I don't think Opera is directly responsible for adding the Breaking News icon; I think someone may be misusing their advertising platform.
