Firefox need to update immediately – scam

There’s a serious malware that can be potentially installed via fake updates of Mozilla Firefox. Certain trojan horse may attack your system and imitate the features of Mozilla Firefox alerts. However, this is a fake alert that is extremely dangerous. It says: “Firefox need to update immediately“. Here is what it reads:

Firefox need to update immediately! Your version of Firefox (18.0) is vulnerable and needs to be updated. Attack pages try to install programs that steal private information, use your computer to attack others, or damage your system. Some attack pages intentionally distribute harmful software, but many are compromised without the knowledge or permission of their owners.

Be careful with such fake Firefox update offers. It has nothing to do with this browser, in fact. If one agrees to “update”, there’s no any update taking place. To the contrary, the serious malware may be installed onto your computer. Hence, be wise and don’t obey the instructions of this scam.
