What's this? http://divine-mind.com/firefox_update.exe http://gluecksuni.com/firefox_update.exe

Chosen solution

hello, this is a phishing tactic that is trying to trick you into installing malware, so don't download or execute this kind of stuff! updates are handled automatically by firefox so you don't have to download anything & if you want to download the full firefox installer always do it directly from mozilla.org.

you might also want to run a full scan of your system with the security software already in place and different tools like the free version of malwarebytes, adwcleaner & kaspersky security scan in order to make sure that there isn't already some sort of malware active on your system that triggers these kinde of false alerts.

Firefox need to update immediately!
Your version of Firefox (18.0) is vulnerable and needs to be updated.
Attack pages try to install programs that steal private information, use your computer to attack others, or damage your system.
Some attack pages intentionally distribute harmful software, but many are compromised without the knowledge or permission of their owners.
