What is: http://c.betrad.com/ba.html?78f7264
I use Bitdefender security and it has been blocking the site (http://c.betrad.com/ba.html?78f7264) and tells me that it is phishing and will be damaging...this only happens thru Mozilla.
What to do? Thanks

Need to understand the purpose of http://c.betrad.com/ba.html?78f7264.... If my Bitdefender is right in assuming this is "phishing" or not...if not then I can eliminate the report as allowed...
These attempts to access my system started a few days ago.
If antivirus is blocking the website, it's usually for a good reason. As long as it doesn't interfere with your normal browsing, just let BitDefender do its thing.
Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.
You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:
- Microsoft Safety Scanner
- MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware
- Anti-Rootkit Utility - TDSSKiller
- AdwCleaner (for more info, see this alternate AdwCleaner download page)
- Hitman Pro
- ESET Online Scanner
Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.
Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Thanks, I probably can live without understanding the nature of this url, since it isn't able to infect my system I will ignore it. Thanks for your thoughts.
