Riding on Firefox's\Chrome's ability to block attack sites, Security Tool, a rogue antivirus application, is attempting a new trick. This time, when an unsuspecting user visits the page, it gets a very authentic-looking block page. But, this is no ordinary block page. It is special in the sense that it offers a download that you can install to update your browser!

Thanks for the link.

And this also effects Google Chrome the same way..... So much for one browser safer than another, always read carefully the site name in your browser.

More reason to always go to the Original Browser site for updates.

Just my two cents

When either of the two mentioned browsers block an attack site, it's just a warning message — no download(s)! :)
