Please help me locate & fix an "Illuminati" java script hack in Firefox

Posted

I've been using Firefox for countless years now & it's ran nearly flawlessly even with a heavy load on my computer with my collection of 100+ tabs that I utilize on a daily basis for my research within Firefox & as I've mentioned; I've never ran into any serious or even bizarre problems.

My problem is with the tabs that have begun to "flash" when I open a specific website. In my case it's amazon.com & a couple of other sites that slip my mind at the moment, I'm sure the entire list will pop-up as soon as I locate the culprit script. I've been looking at possible ways of achieving something like this & it's clearly Javascript that the "hacker" is utilizing. I've mainly use a leaned out version of XP until a barrage of breaks hit my computer practically all at once & essentially forced me to abandon my primary partition for Windows & lately I've been using Ubuntu & even this operating system is experiencing breaks on a regular basis.

I've had a few breaks on my optical drives in Windows as well as Linux. One of my newer Samsung DVD-RW drives was turned into a reader(DVD-ROM) without me even restarting the computer so I know that they have some type of low level tool that can interface & overwrite firmwares as well as the System Bios in real-time without being in a safe mode like environment.

I know stuff can be hidden in modules from within Firefox but, please tell me that there's only a few or even one specific location where this "Enlightened" script is located. I don't think it should be that difficult in locating once I know what to look for.

There has to be someone out there that's familiar with Javascript & it's capabilities. Hopefully they're still just having their breakfast like I should have done this morning.

You've never heard of the Illuminati? Take a look at the useless symbols that they've hidden in the US 1 dollar bill. They have a few drone slaves at their disposal that do their bidding. One might say something along the lines of "1000 monkeys at 1000 typewriters"; so to speak.

From the way this guy is trying to make it look so far it's every device on my external I.P. that has something going wrong with it & it spreads to nearby computers. Only thing he didn't account for is the fact that he forces the same "behavior" on two different computers that don't even use the same platform.

On a side note, I do get a few other small problems that break on their own that I never cause such as breaking the handshake that allows a video feed to be passed from one device to another through HDMI; these devices that have this happen to them always have an active internet connection.

Even devices that have been isolated from whatever embedded itself into my browser such as an old spare laptop that was fine before but now shows the same blinking tab symptom that the others show across platforms.

I've got the same exact embedded javascript on two different platforms as well as computers. I didn't install anything that's capable of selecting specific websites as a target through java & I can't see anything that could.

To me, it's obvious that someone cowardly is targeting me because to many things are breaking on their own, some of which can't be repaired. I don't surf malicious sites & I keep guard of my computers as my well as private & wired network.

I'm a researcher; not a porn addict. Hopefully someone can at least point me in the right direction.

The NoScript add-on can prevent unauthorized or malicious scripts from running. See: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/noscript/

You should update Firefox to the latest version since Firefox 9.0.1 is subject to known vulnerabilities. Also make sure you are using the latest version of installed plugins for your OS, such as Adobe Flash, by visiting the PluginCheck webpage and performing all recommended updates.

As suggested earlier you should also scan for malware. If you need more help you should visit a forum specializing in security and malware removal. See these articles for more information:
