Why does firefox start downloading a file when I visit http://www.techeye.net/ ? Is it a trojan?

Posted

New phone, new experience.

I went to techeye.net today (news website) for the first time from firefox for android. It started downloading a file to my phone (terrifying and unexpected). The desktop browser for windows doesn't do this (or at least doesn't tell me) and neither does chrome.

Can someone visit the site and confirm the experience and let me know if it's malicious?

Tech Eye is serving WAP content to Firefox on Android. Since we can't display it, we download it. There is nothing dangerous about this. I've filed bug 975439 to look into getting the site to fix itself.
