Is there a chance of apk files being harmful?
Hi all, would like to check if apk files have ability to be harmful to the phone if it is not opened?
Here's what happened. I was reading some tweets and happened to click on one of the links my friend had tweeted. It opened my browser and downloaded a file called adultgallery.apk automatically, without my permission. The file name said it all, and i immediately deleted the file without opening it. Will it cause any harm to my phone since i did not open the suspicious file?
Thanks in advance,

I doubt it will cause any harm. If it could, I think you would've known shortly after downloading it.
