    For all you Firefox users!!!!!!!!

    Yet another scam has hit the users. And this time the target audience is Mozilla Firefox users. This fake antivirus software uses a replica of Windows Update page to load fake antivirus software into a user’s PC.

    Mozilla® Firefox hit by a fake antivirus

    It's very nasty. I have it now.

    Its an converted spyware program that fucks up your registry. And it's a sneaky bugger too.
