This is new trick that would cause you to download Trojan software and steal money from your LR account.
A Trojan horse, or Trojan, is malware that appears to perform a desirable function for the user prior to run or install but instead facilitates unauthorized access of the user's computer system. "It is a harmful piece of software that looks legitimate. Users are typically tricked into loading and executing it on their systems"

What is Liberty Guard?
LibertyGuard is a Firefox plugin that blocks fake/phishing web sites that will try to steal your Liberty Reserve password. It will also notify you when you visit the real Liberty Reserve web site.
How can fake web sites steal my password?
These web sites are called phishing web sites. These web sites were made by hackers to look as real as possible to Liberty Reserve web site. These web sites will try to scare you that your LR account might get closed if you do not provide your Liberty Reserve password. Some people might fall for this trick and will provide the hackers their login info to their LR account.
Why should I use Liberty Guard?
For the same reason why people put car alarm on their cars - extra protection against thieves. We recommend using this plugin even if you can distinguish the real LR web site from a fake one because some fake web sites will also try to infect your computer with viruses. LibertyGuard will block the fake web site and its viruses from getting to your computer.
