Hello Kaspersky community! Merry Christmas!
I have noticed since yesterday (but maybe it is related to the 95.0.2 Firefox update) that Firefox tries to access some weird websites each time it starts.
The websites Firefox tries to access are various (non-exhaustive list):
Kaspersky Internet Security blocks all those access attempts and notifies me with a "Download denied" event and a "Probability of unauthorized software download" message (see image below):
I immediately suspected one of my Firefox extensions, so I disabled them all... But the issue kept on occurring. Could Firefox be infected? I ran Kaspersky Internet Security through my whole PC, and it found nothing.
I find it hard to believe that this behaviour is normal and that these alerts are false positives from Kaspersky Internet Security... What do you think guys?
Here is some information about my system:
- Microsoft Windows 10 Home 21H2 (2021-07-26 build 19044.1415)
- Mozilla Firefox 95.0.2 (64-bit)
- Kaspersky Internet Security 126.96.36.1991 (g)
