Fire Fox FYI - beware of Firefox security fix message
I decided the other day to give Fire Fox Browser another try after reading what a resource hog Chrome can be especially on my phone.
After loading FF on my Laptop PC and starting the browser I received a full screen message stating "urgent Firefox security update. This immediately aroused my suspicions so I exited out of the screen which is apparently just what the intruder message expected me to do. A quick download started which I could not stop, so I immediately powered down. Too late. I was now infected with this Kotver!gm Trojan. Yikes. I tried everything to get rid of it including Power Easer but without success. I looked it up on the Norton website an found that it was a known problem but the corrective action was to do what I had done already or restore my operating system. Needless to say a restore was way low on my wish list.
Well I'm back on today and it appears to be solved, at least I hope so. I had to do a couple of scans and restarts as instructed by Norton, but it appears Norton cleaned things up for me. So far, so good.
