Browsing with Firefox takes my pc to hostingcloud.science infected with JS:Miner [trj] I have worked with Malwarebytes Support to get rid of it, to no avail, unless I use a vpn with Avast. I have seen this exploit discussed by other users. When will Firefox find a solution? I have reinstalled, cleaned, scanned, etc to no avail. the only thing that is currentlyl working is using Avast vpn browsing from a different country than my own. Please help, thanks

Every time I visit Ebay site, when using Firefox (at Ebay), I continue to randomly be prompted to download a file titled "firefox-patch.js" despite NEVER asking or clicking on anything to prompt this, simply loading Ebay at an random given time, and also a fake Firefox page (which looks very authentic) is automatically opening a new tab in my browser, circumventing my popup blocker and security software. I have confirmed with Mozilla/Firefox and reported the issue to Norton Small Business, as this continues to be a problem In reaching out to Mozilla support, I am informed that this and others are surely fake, and pose a threat to security - such as Trojans, worms and other malware which seems only to happen when at Ebay. I have confirmed, these threats (which have been confirmed as fake and security risks) with Mozilla and have had Symantec perform several scans and investigate that this has not actually successfully infiltrated my systems, however every time I visit ebay, these or similar attacks are occurring; and per Mozilla support they are receiving several reports every day regarding these attempted attacks.

The last two potential threats that nearly have circumvented my security (fortunately, I have been cautious after noticing that they were suspicious due to the URLS) are from the following:

Threat Source URL or Spoofed URL: https://kahdacitylinkexpress.org Incident URL: https://kahdacitylinkexpress.org/2571196760355/7b393ecf118dc15d4f6e925feea6ab53/13f5cda28c1df11a7536ab141ede954.htm

Threat Source URL or Spoofed URL: https://ohgeifrommymama.org Incident URL: https://ohgeifrommymama.org/4511196760355/128000dfb0f3957954e96e6a8152c861/a7cf6027104131b46f4795a97a9c3532.html

EBAY MUST ADDRESS THIS MATTER AS IT IS CAUSING ALARM AND OUR COMPANY NOW QUESTIONS WHETHER OR NOT EBAY IS A SAFE MARKETPLACE AS THUS FAR, THIS IS ONLY OCCURRING WHILE AT EBAY!

Please, we respectfully request that your security department attempt to stop these attacks, as it has been happening fairly regularly, despite the attacks appearing to being somewhat random. The only certainty we have experienced is: IT SEEMS IT IS ONLY OCCURRING WHILE ON EBAY! We have reported this issue to Mozilla, Norton/Symantec (NSB) and Ebay.

We kindly ask that this matter be investigated, and please note, we have reported this to Mozilla and to Symantec to help warn customers of a potentially serious risk.

Kind Regards, Rmzey Z Allen, Owner RZC, RZ-Xchange

A pop-up from Mozilla said 'Mozilla Firefox Critical Error!' with a phone number to call (message said to call Microsoft support). I called the phone number, believed the representative, gave him remote access to my computer (over 1 hr.). Was told the were hacker files in my system and they installed new virus protection and disabled the virus protection I had on my system. Found out this is a ploy hackers use to steal info. Does Mozilla activate a pop-up warning as mentioned above? ... or have I been scammed?

duplicate of /questions/1038370

The latest update of Firefox installed Foxydeal without my permission!!! Please inform me immediately how to remove this program. It is unwanted, intrusive, bothersome and slows down my computer! Up until now, I have loved using Firefox, if this is the way they are going to operate, I will use some other program.
