Spam notifications on Xperia S?

I've been getting this notifications, they look like a gree plus sign + they are spam that will open the browser

any idea what is triggering it? I don't have any new apps, and it started couple days ago. this last one was about winning a new ipad.

That is weird as from past experience this is triggered by a third party application that supports push adverts. It would have to be a third party application you have installed as there is nothing by default in the phone that does this.

Do you think it has to do with PS pocket or PS Store those are the last apps I've installed on my Xperia S

I'll keep checking, I even check on running apps but there wasn't anything suspicious

I do not believe it is those two, I know others with them installed who do not get the notifications.

Have you found the culprit? I have the same problem on my Xperia S and I could not identify the source either.sad

I found Airpush Detector, that seems to be able to detect the culprit. I have detected 2 Themes that I installed, and have just uninstalled. Monitoring whether the Spam Ad Notification will pop up again.
