How to remove urgent firefox update from https://aphocpreviewyoursites.net/3232903648882/9bb5f2f39f74dd570ec3d1fe2e75bc9a.html

Posted

How do I stop this page from appearing? It seems to be randomly occurring. This is the web address:

  • https://aphocpreviewyoursites.net/3232903648882/9bb5f2f39f74dd570ec3d1fe2e75bc9a.html

and it opened up a window to start the download:

  • https://aphocpreviewyoursites.net/3232903648882/1473515620172904/firefox-patch.js

Thanks!


Edit by a forum Moderator. I made the links none clickable. They will paste test at your own risk -J99

That is a fake update, ignore it.

uBlock Origin is effective at blocking that exploit. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/

I received a report that the link in the OP is still active. I can still use a link to that domain and it has a clean report on virustotal, but there was a report from a helpful contributor saying it may redirect on Internet Explorer and cause a freeze, so I have made the links none clickable

I downloaded the ublock origin and am not seeing the problem anymore. Sorry I was not able to determine the original site I was visiting when this happened. Thanks again.
