Fake Firefox Update
I see the fake Firefox update is back. I am getting them when I go to an
Ebay page from my email [ will stop doing that now ]. I have decided
that it may just be possible that someone is tracking watching and
linking somehow. Dunno. The fake update is the firefox-patch dot js
which throws a new screen up and looks very official. It however is
linked to a site called ceerebi4u which is a totally random name so
there is no link.
I never have clicked installs from pop ups and always CTRL-ALT-DEL out
of notifications like that and close Firefox. Has happened twice now and
both times from my links to Ebay. I seem to recall having the problem a
few years ago. My guess its these guys using old ideas to try and get
you to download this ransom stuff.
Anyway, just give you the heads up. Firefox updates from the updates
