Microsoft’s Anti SpyWare detects Firefox as a spyware with high security risk !

The Claim, “This is a very high risk threat and should be removed immediately as to prevent harm to your computer.”

It never fails to amaze me how hostile of an environment the Internet really is. The Internet is loaded with Web sites containing malicious code.

Accidentally landing on one of these sites can infect your computer with a plethora of ad ware or spyware modules. The scary part is that you may never even know that your computer is infected.

While its true that some adware and spyware infections are obvious because of the way that they hijack your browser, often times key stroke loggers and other Trojans are working silently in the background where you would never notice them.

The worst part of spy ware and ad ware is how easy it is to get an infection. Not only are the owners of countless malicious Web sites doing everything that they can to deceive you into accidentally visiting their site, nowadays perfectly legitimate and otherwise harmless sites can spread infections. There have recently been reports of legitimate sites that sell ad space infecting PC’s because someone has imbedded malicious code within an ad.

For the most part I have done a fairly good job of keeping spyware off of my machines, but I have lost count of how many machines that I have cleaned up for friends and family. A few months ago, I was listening to a speech by Bill Gates. In his speech, he made a comment that his own personal machines had become infected by spyware on more than one occasion, and that as a result, Microsoft was declaring war on spyware. At the time, no one was quite sure what this off handed comment really meant, but a few months have passed, and Microsoft has just released the first beta version of Microsoft Windows AntiSpyware.

Unlike many of Microsoft’s beta programs, the AntiSpyware beta program is open to the public. You can download a copy of the software from: http: // /athome/security/spyware/software/default.mspx The only restriction to downloading the beta is that you must have a legitimate (not pirated) copy of Microsoft Windows, and if you are running Windows XP, then Windows must be activated prior to the download.

The AntiSpyware software is designed to run under Windows 2000, XP, and Server 2003. The minimum hardware requirements include a 300 MHz CPU, 64 MB of RAM, and 10 MB of free hard disk space.

When I was installing the better known anti virus programs, I would receive a pop up message from the AntiSpyware software telling me that changes had been made to my system by a trusted program.

However, when ever I tried to install lesser known anti virus programs, I received a pop up message telling me that a program was trying to add itself to Windows’ shortcut menus or to Internet Explorer. It then gave me the chance to either allow or block the change.

I thought that this was interesting since the AntiSpyware program was intercepting attempts to modify my system by a user installed program, rather than by malicious code hidden in a Web site. It gives me a good feeling about the level of protection that the software will eventually provide.

As to the accuracy of the program, I give it a thumbs down.The Anti-Spyware program tells users this FALSE report about Firefox. I Yet to see Microsoft do anything right the first time. Why start now ?

Please becareful with this program.
I question it's accuracy !

Firefox is evil! Everybody panic!
Although this is the first time Ive seen MS actually call Firefox a bad name.
Wonder what Mozilla is doing about this from a lawsuit point?
