Thread: Conficker warning when starting to look for addon-updates

  1. 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 81.88.40.52

    the update runs fine, although the connection to 81.88.40.52 is
    blocked by Peerblock.
    Regarding to http://www.sitelogr.com/s/exxtasy.de this ip belongs to
    the website exxtasy.de which I doubt to be an official site of
    mozilla.

    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.
