Spyware Posing as Flash Update Hits Firefox

Unread postby Vino Rosso » November 30th, 2009, 7:30 am

There's some sneaky, new malware on the loose, and this time, it's after the users of Mozilla's Firefox browser. According to Laptop Magazine, the plug-in poses as an update for Adobe's Flash Player. Users are taken through some fake steps and are lead to believe the installation was completed. No harm done, right?
