I am getting Spam that uses Firefox's logo. What do I do?

Posted

Almost everyday I get a request to download new Firefox updates, but the address always bothered me, there was always different URL addresses and the latest one comes from "https://ooghuprank.org/". So I am thinking this is spam. But I get it all the time, and I don't know what to do about it. I need help.
