Hi guys,
I've been getting prompts every few days from Mozilla for updates or patches. I save them in my computer and then open them up. Sometimes they don't open up at all after downloading them. Recently, and out of curiosity I decided to check on the IP address listed on the prompt because it appears that i'm getting them too often and now i'm suspicious. Below are two of these addresses:

https://zohxibloggfamiljen.net
https://chahcluclymedia.net

I feel that I have a virus in my computer now since i'm unable to access these two sites. Although I like to switch components and upgrade my computer every so often, i'm not a software or virus type of guy. I would like to know if someone knows anything about this Mozilla patch or those two website that appear to be bogus to me, and what to do about it. Thank you very much for your advice.

Thanks Hlsgsz. What a difference, the download lasted over a minute while the previous ones were a matter of seconds. Also, the prompt had a Mozilla address on it. Now i'm really concerned as to the damage I might've cause downloading those previous bogus patches.

The patches are just patches, while now you downloaded the whole thing, so they might not have been bogus.
Regardless, run https://www.herdprotect.com/downloads.aspx to set your mind at ease.
