This has happened to me twice over the past 2 days, so I thought I'd post a warning in case anyone else gets hit.

I was reading a messageboard and one of the pages was redirected to a Firefox warning page with a pop up urging me to "download this security patch". Fortunately, I didn't as I'm extremely suspicious of that kind of crap.

I went looking and found this from Firefox.

The ads on the affected pages are hacked to redirect you to a fake webpage. If it happens to you don't download the security patch.
