Hi dear Community!

As of recent, my AntiVirus software is flagging Firefox.exe (Full path: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe) as a vulnerable application. I have been using firefox for years (Because I love it, you guys are heroes) and i have been using Kaspersky for years. Firefox has only been flagged as of recent.........

I hope someone knows why, has this too or can calm my paranoia

Some Additional information:

Have you clicked any suspicious links? No i have not. The links i have visited were all https, checked and acknowledged by Kaspersky and i can say with full certainty that the sites were legit

Have i downloaded any files as of recent? Yes, but from reputable sources and always checked using Hashes and validating using KSN (Kaspersky security network).

(For the Mods, im sorry for previously posting this in the wrong forum.)

Do you think this could be because a new version (123.0) was released yesterday, or did this start even earlier? If relevant, see:

Update Firefox to the latest release

Hi! Thank you so much for helping

Yes, I'm guessing it is because of the update. I have tried to stimulate my situation on different new hard- and software running Firefox and kaspersky, but same result. It flags it as a vulnerable application which threat actors can use to do bad things. Is anyone else having this, or does anyone understand why it does this?

I would try this forum for you issue. https://forum.kaspersky.com/forum/products-for-home-10/ The Moderator Flood and Flood's wife should reply soon. There should be an option to ignore or allow the app.
