Smart guy went on some porn site to 'check out the display'. Anyway when he clicked on video to play it, it downloaded file PornoVideo.apk
Now I don't know if it downloaded itself or he did it. But I know it wanted permission which I took my phone and declined.
Later I let my avast scan and it found it to be some Trojan.
Now I am scared if it can send those fraudy SMS or enter into my accounts(keylogged) etc.
What to do now ?
It was automatically loged in in most of my accounts. Could've it installed itself even without permission and could it run in background now ?
I'm really scared...

If you uninstall the apk and remove any downloaded files then you'll have no worries. Android itself doesn't get what we regard as viruses but malware can be an issue. Like Linux though, once the apk is removed it can't obtain the required permissions and is rendered harmless to your phone. However, If you've connected the phone to your pc then run an antivirus on it, that's where most harm can be done

That is a scary notion. It's difficult when lending phones to friends since they sometimes go to these bad sites.
