Fake Firefoxfur

There's an interesting post by Lee Graves about fake Firefox updates that actually push adware.

It's pretty comprehensive, and lots of other blogs have picked up on it, so I won't rehash the issue here. However, I notice that The Register have credited us with the story (though they may have changed it by the time you read this). :)

Just to clear up any confusion, that "threatcenter" blog at blogspot is nothing to do with us, despite the similarity in the names. Ironically, it's sponsored by eSoft, whose name is also not that different to ours.
