Firefox updater being flagged as a trojan agent


Recommended Posts

We have a Barracuda web filter which gives us Malwarebytes as a removal tool.


Recently during scans it has started marking the firefox updater as a trojan agent. I was wondering if this is a risk or a false positive. I ran the following scan on a Windows XP PC today and it found the following

Hi Kerry, just to verify, the file you attached here, is this the one that was actually detected by Malwarebytes and was it located in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\updater.exe?

So you uploaded the updater.exe that is located there?

Does your barracuda still detect this file when you run a scan?
