Short story: It's a sophisticated phishing scam. Someone can send you an email to your Gmail account with a Calendar invitation attached. If you have "auto add invites" turned on then you would get a calendar invite added with a malicious link in it. It's targeted at Android phones, but it's a function of your Google account and works that way by design.
Best to turn this off if you don't need it. You need to disable it in the Gmail web control panel so go to Gmail.com, login in, then click on the Gear icon then Settings > Event Setting > Automatically add invitations = no.
