As of 12/19 I am getting a consistent alert from Windows 10 'Defender'.

The alert states that the Trojan in the topic title is found on my desktop in:
file: C:\Users\Richard M\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\hpp14z7y.default\cache2\entries\8FADA02C54B22B20097E0FA17D546AD6C9215F

The alert appears immediately after I go to this site and open a thread.

The alert DOES NOT appear when I visit any of my usual news sites.

Please advise.

Thanks,
Rich Morrison

FYI, I reported this a couple of days back (it's being generated by handviewer URLs). They've been looking into it but it's almost certainly a false positive.
Feel free to send me a friend challenge of any format as often as you like. I'll always accept :)

We submitted our handviewer URL to Microsoft as a false positive, hopefully they'll update their database.
