Bogus “browser update” pages deliver malware

     …
The pages – located at vkernel(dot)org, aveonix(dot)org, smolvell(dot)org, stocknick(dot)org – are not able to detect what browser the users use and serve either a Firefox or Chrome themed fake update warning.

…Users are warned to be careful when being presented similar pages. The aforementioned four are still online, but there might be others. In any case, it’s always best to update your browser by using the updating mechanism it contains.”

  1. Thanks for keeping us informed. Looks like there all down or being blocked here.

    Happy hunting and/or surfing.

  2. I presume the quoted text meant to say that these sites “are able to detect what browser the users use” (otherwise they would not know which theme to use in the update warning) and “The aforementioned four are not online, but there might be others” (or, the phrase “but there might be others” should be “and there might be others”).

    I don’t expect proper grammar in blogs, but I cringe when phrasing indicates contradictory statements inside the same sentence.
