I received a big Firefox Security Warning. It wanted me to download a security patch. I found several similar questions. I am going to turn it off without downloading or continuing.

That was a fake "patch" - not a legitimate Firefox message. It would have installed a 'tracker' program.

I also got this red window when clicking on Answerslifestyle on Yahoo.com.

It is 100% FAKE as the oolultopwereldvastgoed .net site has been one of a few sites trying to trick inexperienced Windows and or Firefox users into installing this fake so called firefox patch. This exe reportedly installs CryptoLocker on Windows, which is a ransomware trojan.
