It is not very convincing if you are browsing the web with Firefox and suddenly have an Internet Explorer themed window pop up and inform you that your PC is infected. The chance of you clicking on that malware is fairly low but now the nasty folks out there have broadened their horizons with new personalized looks. According to The Register you can get personalized fake anti-virus pop ups in Firefox, Chrome and Safari.
"For years, ads pimping malware disguised as legitimate antivirus programs have gone to great lengths to mimic the look and feel of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer browser and Windows operating system. Now Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Apple Safari are getting the same treatment."
