Received a "Recommended Security Improvement" from 161016.avstats.com the number being today's date on another pc. Can't find anything about it on the Mozilla website and can't find anything about avstats.com when searching online. Note: the originating website name is avstats.com and not awstats.com. The file that was offered was 161016.avstats.com/update/init. A warning appeared as a drop down menu saying: "Firefox prevented this site from asking you to install software on your computer". Decided to pass as it didn't come from mozilla.

That is NOT a Mozilla message.

. Whenever you get a message / popup that software / files need to be updated;

DO NOT USE ANY OF THE PROVIDED LINKS

While this may be a legitimate message, it could also be Malware or a Virus. Any time you want or need to check for upgrades, go to the website of the True Owner of the program in question. For example, to check out Firefox, go to https://www.mozilla.org {web link}

You can report such a site at; Google Report Phishing Page {web link} which is the same when done while on site by going to Help > Report Web Forgery

Help us safeguard Mozilla’s trademarks by reporting misuse {web link}

Thought so. Many thanks for the links. The warning bells were jangling when I saw the originator was not Mozilla and they got even louder when I looked at avstats.com.
