Hi

 

Not sure where to post this, if this is the wrong forum please let me know.

 

Several times in the past few weeks I've been redirected to  a website that want's me to update, I think java..... The download is firefox-patch.js

 

I didn't download it and after closing the browser I checked my firefox updates and they are all up to date.

 

I have the website it came from but am not sure if I am supposed to post it here since it might be a bad site.

 

Is this malware?

 

I've checked with superantispyware, malwarebytes, avast, asw cleaner and they pick up nothing.

 

 

 

Thanks

 

Rick

It's malware. Never download and install any "patch" for firefox. Use an adblocker with Noscript and Ghostery on firefox.
