Every now and then when Firefox, McAfee (or something pretending to be McAfee) pops up a window in the lower-right corner of my screen that says the following:
Program Wants Internet Access
McAfee has detected a program on your PC that is trying to accept incoming connections from the Internet. Protect your PC by only allowing Internet access for programs you trust.
About This Program:
Program: Plugin Container for Firefox
Location: C:\program files\mozilla firefox\plugin-container.exe
Recommendation: unknown program
Tell McAfee about this program.
The link goes to a hacker identifier site with a McAfee logo which requests information about my computer.
I get a similar message about Firefox.exe.
Is this for real? Is this from McAfee? My McAfee firewall is on and my subscription is up to date.
Firefox version: 3.6.12
OS: Windows XP Pro version 5.1 Service Pack 3
If this isn't for real, is there a utility to wipe this out?
