my firefox has been hacked--bogus links to advertisements now appear

Veröffentlicht

This only happens on Firefox, not Internet Explorer. Several bogus links appear on many web pages--created on the fly. The malware seems to look for specific words, make them into links, and on mouseover they appear--these ads are all related to the words that are parts of the original page. I tried updating Firefox to the most recent version (19.0.2) but that did not fix the problem. I'm using Windows XP Home Edition SP3.

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 Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.
