I sent a note to google about this page.I hope they will include it in their safebrowsing/phishing database and Firefox as user of this Database will block it.
Clarifiaction: The browser went in "Offline Mode" just after the trojan payload file download had been completed and Firefox was asking (in my case) where to save it. Clearly it would not make much sense to make the browser offline BEFORE downloading the trojan. The browser also disappointed me by naming the file incorrectly IMO. In the form I directed that it be named "whatever.exe.off" instead of "whatever.exe" to guard against accidental execution. But the browser redid the hazardous choice, saving the file as "whatever.exe.off.exe" We must be very careful not to save files as executables when the user doesn't expect it! Dropping executables in the wrong directory can get them to be run automatically, soon or at reboot. Never add a executable suffix without the users' knowledge! I assume the MIME type was used to add the "correct" suffix, contradicting the suffix I chose.
carlp, can you file a separate bug report about ".exe" being added at an inappropriate time? You should be able to use https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/3.0/win32/en-US/ as a testcase.
