Firefox need to update immediately description
“Firefox need to update immediately” is a quite widespread fake warning. If clicked upon, the pop-up takes a victim to a counterfeit Firefox website to download malware. This way the user is tricked into downloading some fraud instead of the promised update.
While keeping your software up-to-date is important, not every single update prompt is legitimate. Scan your computer with antimalware to avoid the rogue pop-ups and make sure you download updates from the official sources.
Here’s what the fake message looks like:
Firefox need to updated immediately!
Your version of Firefox (18.0) is vulnerable and needs to be updated.
Attack pages try to install programs that steal private information, user your computer to attack others, or damage your system.
Some attack pages intentionally distribute harmful software, but many are compromised without the knowledge or permission of their owners.
Start update process
We recommend using advanced antimalware program such as STOPzilla AVM 2013 to keep cyber threats away.
