Fake Firefox Update Includes Trojan

According to various reports, some users have recently received a Firefox update notification to their emails with a download link for you to try.

Don’t worry though; it does actually include a Firefox 5.0.1 installer. However, it is bundled with a Trojan horse, which is not exactly what people prefer.

It looks like Firefox related emails are getting more and more popular as just yesterday we have received a message informing us about the “Mozilla Firefox Inc Lotto” winnings.

    Leaving aside the usual scam emails which have some big companies behind them (also called the competition) it’s been a long time since I’ve seen the famous ribbon interface.

    The biggest item in there is the “Delete” button – sure the first thing that people do when receiving emails ;). Also the “reply and delete” button in the central part is quite amusing – as a heavy email user I never felt the need to make such an action…

      Ribbon is awesome! I was a hater before getting used to it, and now it’s like a breeze of fresh air.

      Can’t wait to see Windows 8 explorer, which does include Ribbon.

        Ribbon is for blind people.
