Firefox let a virus called "Best Antivirus 2011" through TODAY

Posted

I was viewing my watchlist on Ebay, when the whole page was replaced by a page saying I had 11 viruses in My Docs, 3 viruses in Files and 11 on my hard-drive. The options to "remove" or "cancel" resulted in "You have chosen to open Best Antivirus 2011"...which meant I had now downloaded it! I scanned the computer with my antivirus program and sure enough, IT found 3 threats...each being "Best Anti Virus 2011". I have repeated scan/removal 5 times, but it is re-embedding itself each time. SO MUCH FOR FIREFOX SECURITY! YOU have been hacked!

Thank you Xircal...it certainly IS "scareware! They didn't ask for a fee though...and as stated earlier, at least 12 Files (including Firefox) had been "modified" at the exact time of the infiltration.

O.K...Thanks "guys". If I go online on the "infected" computer, to buy Pro 3, won't the hack-bug make the best of my time online?
