I have seen today in customer's PSB quite some incidents of Adware.BHO.BrowserProtection detections. Way more than normal. (from 3 different customers).
Is there an outbreak on web-pages regarding this virus? or it's a false positive detection of Firefox plugin?
F-secure has something to comment?
You should probably send an e-mail to "email@example.com" (if you do NOT have file samples) or to "firstname.lastname@example.org" (if you do have file samples attached).

With regards to your problem, kindly visit the link below and register as a user and submit your sample. If you don't have a sample just upload an empty file and put in your queries in the message box.
As per your question, below is the response from our Malware Analysts:-
I am having problems that fsecure does not seem to be detecting. Last week it took tech support over an hour to sort out my machine. Yesterday was hijacked by snap.search, after watching victor from tech support sort the problem remotely I sorted it myself. Problem was an unknown program told me it had found the infection, I ignored it as it was not from f-secure. Said no to all delete instructions then ran Google chrome up it popped. Ran full scan found nothing, manually edited registry deleted snap search entries, could not find program to delete. Problem seems to be solved. This is now twice in about two weeks that something appears to have slipped by fsecure, I thought I was protected against attacks like this. I do not download and run programs unless it is a trusted site.
Looking forward to comments.
Ehm, well. There is NO trustful domain anymore. Every site could be infected.
You should update your installed software asap. The crapware is still on your pc. If you do not submit the file to f-secure the is not detected in the near future. It just happened if others will send the file. So avoid not to send the file. For the community.
All software up to date, fsecure can not detect file so how can I submit a sample or even find it? There are multipall sites explaining how to delete the bug so shurley fsecure should be aware of it. What is happening to fsecure its its starting to let me down!
With regards to your problem, kindly provide me the SRID so that I can take a look at your case.
