I don't really know what this is....or whether it's a virus....But when I'm using firefox....occasionally firefox will get a pop up saying its trying to download "PDF.PDF" from aqz.itrodip.info. It's done this probably 3 or 4 times in the last 3 weeks.
I have no idea what this is. I ran a volume scan a few weeks ago and found nothing.
Has anyone ran into this? Is it spyware? A virus?
I'm going to run one again and see what it finds.

Macintosh.
Oh. And a recent scan found nothing.  Just a lot of error 13's and stuff. Nothing major.
I actually did a search for that url on BING...and it came up with a result.
http://www.bing.com/search?q=http%3A%2F%2Faqz.itrodip.info&go=&form=QBLH&qs=n
You can look at that if you wish. It's not a direct link to the url...just to the search results.

Have you tried allowing Firefox to download (not open) the file and sending it to VirusTotal?

http://www.virustotal.com/
Well...when the popup happens...it never automatically downloads...it just tries to open it.
But no I have not tried that. Would it be safe to?

Oh...and polonus...I do not own a windows based machine....so everything you told me there wouldn't really help me.
I think anyways. Not to mention I do not have Norton.
Thanks though.

Just saving it would be safe- as Polonus' post points out, it's probably Windows malware anyway.

EDIT: Actually, reading Polonus' post, it's clear the link is (or was- it seems to be dead) malicious, so there's no point downloading the file- but you do need to investigate what keeps trying to download the file.

Have you tried looking through your Firefox extensions and plug-ins to see if there is a malicious extension installed?

There's a page linked to in this article which will display them all, although it won't tell you if they are malicious- you'll have to Goolge any you don't recognise.

I'm not seeing anything in my plugins or extensions.
There's a divx plug in....flip4mac.....iphoto......java embedding....quicktime....and shockwave.
Oh...and a default gecko plugin. Not really sure what that is...but I'm assuming its safe.
The only extensions I have are noscript. Which I turn on and off periodically.

Check out your Firefox extensions and plug-ins- that's really all I can think of.

aight.
Well....everything appears to be a-ok on that front. The only thing that I dont recognize is default plugin 2.0 Gecko default plugin.
But I'm assuming that's just something normal on firefox.

The issue seems to apply to Windows, Mac and Linux.

Still looking into this one: maybe an answer will come up eventually.  ???

Hallo,
try to save it (it won't harm your computer if you don't open it), and upload it to virustotal com. It might be some kind of pdf-exploit.
