I got a message from "Firefox Security" that my computer was full of viruses asking if I wanted them to correct the problem. The address was not Firefox though. I figured it was a fake. Does anyone know?

It might have said "Mozilla Security" but the address line wasn't Mozilla either. I think it might be a new virus, so I didn't click on it. Today is the first time I saw that. My antivirus software is up-to-date and was working.

That will be a fake, there are malicious sites that use this method to try to get people to install malware. Mozilla does not scan for viruses or send out messages like that.

Thanks. I thought it was some sort of scam and wanted to alert other users, but, wasn't positive. Thanks for letting me know.
