My antivirus program is telling me that Mozilla is giving me a trojan every time I open Firefox for the first time. What to do?
Recently, every time I open Firefox for the first time after starting my computer, I get a message from my anti-virus program, Bitdefender, that Mozilla is trying to infect my computer with a Trojan (see file below). Each time I delete it. This has never happened before, and I have not had any trouble with Bitdefender before either. Is there a way to stop this Trojan from recurring?
- Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:67.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/67.0
(see file below)
Please include the file link.
Did you get your Firefox from Mozilla?
You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no
Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.
