Is Product Testers ( url: http://www.consolelegends.com/NoName/) legitimate?

Posted

When I opened Firefox, got a popup from Product Testers asking 3 questions: gender, how many social networks I use, and how many hours/week do I spend on social networks. After answering the questions, I was given a choice of 3 too-good-to-be-true gifts: a $1000 gift card, and iPhone4 or an iPad. Then I was asked for cell phone and email address. I stopped at that point, beginning to question the wisdom of what I was doing and the validity of the request.

Short answer: it's probably not legitimate.

Longer answer: anything on the internet that looks too good to be true probably is too good to be true - except for Firefox which is too good, but it is true :P

If the popup opened without you doing anything you may have some malware on your computer. Have a look here to see if you do, or if it's just a false alarm: Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware
