Hi   PattiKA,

This is definately a scam    -     good for you not to fall for it   ! In case this patch is urging you to update: Firefox will always update from within the browser and not from a random page or patch. Scammers have been using this tactic, trying to get users to download and infect their computer. To stop this,  you could consider an ad-blocking add-on, like:

Well said.

. 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}
