    Hi.

    I have a Windows 8.1 phone and about half an hour ago I received what seemed to be a Windows banner message (it was black and came with a Windows alert sound) that just said "lol". Nothing else noticeable has happened to my phone.

    Has anyone heard of a virus or malware that does this?

    Can anyone advise me what to do about it?

    Thanks,
    Carl.

    Did your phone have fb installed in it?
    Maybe someone commented that, and it showed up there.
    Things like that have happened with me. I get broken notifications on my 830. For example my friend made a comment on fb. And all i got as a notification was 'k'.
    But when it happened again, I was able to figure it out.
    So, I am positive it is not a virus or a malware. Just some os issue.
    I own 950xl now. It doesn't have that issue.
