I got a very official looking red screen with the Firefox logo titled "Urgent Firefox update". It had the normal looking opening file box asking me if I wanted to save the file: firefox-patch.exe, a binary file from https://ahghointernetno.net . I closed the window and started researching if this was real. I did make a print screen copy to WordPad but was unable to upload it here do to unsupported file type.

When I was already engaged in another open Firefox tab, a new tab suddenly opened stating it was an "urgent" Firefox update and asked me to install software (for which an application widow then opened).

Is this legitimate or a hoax, the sign of some malware, virus, etc?

Naturally I would want to comply if Firefox really did have some new important update. But I could find nothing about this "urgent" update when I searched in Firefox for info. about it. The first thing I did was to go to the "About Firefox" item in the Help menu, saw that the system said "up-to-date," even clicked on "What' New" but saw nothing about an urgent update.

Please advise on how to get to the bottom of why this tab suddenly popped open, to prevent such from happening again.

About once a week I'm prompted to accept a download from Firefox normally while I'm reading a news article. Every few days, I launch Firefox, click tools, help and check for updates. I do maintain the latest version. I'm currently on version 47.0.1 on a Windows 7 64 bit Pc.

I'm not sure if an add-on needs updating or if spyware is trying to download. In the past, when I know I have the current version of Firefox installed, I quickly start task manager and end the FireFox task without clicking anything else that could allow spyware to download. I went back to the page (link is below) where I received the download message but it didn't display this time. If this is an add-on update, where can I verify I need it?

Can anyone tell me if this is legitimate? if so, what is downloading?

Spontaneous apparently bogus "urgent update"

My question is, does anyone know how to get rid of it?

I have been having this malware come up like others but it recently changed. Before, it just opened in a new tab. Now, it actually loads as a new page on the current tab; even if nothing is clicked and my hands are physically off the keyboard and mouse. Additionally, it automatically tries to download a file but I am able to stop it without it running (as far as I know). Like mentioned before, the link to the page is white when followed. I have only been having this issue on one site, reddit and more specifically reddit.com/r/totalwar.

What happens each time is that sometimes when I click a link to either a forum post, the comments, or an imgur post. After the page loads and a few seconds pass, the 'Urgent Update' page loads and replaces the page that was intended. It then does what I described above. For me, no other sites have this issue but I wanted to contribute to try and help this seemingly growing issue. Are there any solutions or steps that have been identified thus far?

firefox-patch.js

Browser page opens with firefox logo on it and says it's an urgent update.

Always happens in the tab where I am using mail.com email client. Not sure that matters, but saying it just in case.

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.

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.
