    News: Firefox users targetted by fake antivirus scams

    THURSDAY, JUNE 9, 2011 | techworld Bookmark and Share

    Firefox users have targeted by new scam that tries to load a user’s PC with fake antivirus software using a passably convincing version of the Windows Update page.

    Fake antivirus scams are legion, and ones using bogus update pages of one sort of another are also an established trick. The oddity of the latest incarnation of the attack, discovered by Sophos, is that it triggers only when encountering Windows users of Firefox pushed to it through a page redirect.

    The first big giveaway? Windows Update can only be started as a background activity in Windows or through Internet Explorer.
