A mail arriveved with 116 jpeg images into Android tablet When load was tapped most loaded to view .

However some had instead of 'load' instead sported 'info'

When these were tapped 'an invitation to find a suitable 'app' appeared.

What is that all about?

Is there any way you can rename the odd ones - change the file extension to .jpg and see what happens?

An old way of hiding files or viruses was to embed them in a jpeg file.

Looks like the advertisers have caught on :0(
