Hi all,

When connecting to net via firefox I get the following message from A-squared:

File name..c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

Diagnosis... found a possible LAN bypass backdoor or spyware.

Beneath this is the following message:

While executing the program a² detected a possible malicious behavior. The program tries to invisibly send data to the internet. If you are sure you want that program to continue its invisible datatransfers allow it. If you are unsure or you don't know that programm terminate it and send it in for further analysis.

I've run Nortons AV, adaware spybot s&d, Housecall & Microsofts Defender all of which found nothing.

A-squared, is the trial version from their website. I was using the free version but thought I'd see what what the trial version had to offer.

Firefox & IE are all latest versions and updated. Nortons etc are all updated also.
