Conficker warning when starting to look for addon-updates
I'm using the program Peerblock to watch and restrict in- and outgoing
requests to my PC.
Always when I start to look for addon-updates (either with Firefox
3.0.17 and with Firefox portable 3.6)
Peerblock gives me the following warning:
W32.Downadup.Conficker - conficker.info
and that my PC tried to contact the ip 188.8.131.52
the update runs fine, although the connection to 184.108.40.206 is
blocked by Peerblock.
Regarding to [url]http://www.sitelogr.com/s/exxtasy.de[/url] this ip belongs to
the website exxtasy.de which I doubt to be an official site of
Anyone got any idea, beside the obvious one that I will do several
conficker-tests and try some conficker removal tools. No matter its
weird that it always only starts when I hit on the addon-update button.

None of the online-checking-sites says I am infected. All say no sign
of infection. I already tested before posting, but rested again with
all your links. Still even if I am infected its strange to only be
when I hit update addons in any of my used firefox versions.
