Exclamation [Q] AT&T Update

I have a rooted S3, running Stockorama for about a year now. Last night, I got this "AT&T Software update". Damn thing popped up and started downloading as soon as I got home (wifi). Doesn't ask if I want it, doesn't give me an option to cancel. Anyone know how to deal with this? Why am I getting an update on a rooted phone with a custom rom in the first place?

Thanks in advance and Merry Christmas.

HTC One X - Stock / Returned to AT&T.
Nokia Lumia 900 - Stock - Secondary
HTC Sensation - ARHD - Backup
G2X - HellFire Sandwich ICS
G2 - MIUI
Nexus One - Vanilla
Treo 700wx, iPhone 3Gs, Nokia N72 - collecting dust.

Merry Christmas G!
...Because "AT&T Software update" was running during an OTA push.
No worries.
Custom recovery disqualifies the push.
Freezing disables it.

Because your custom ROM didn't do a thorough enough job of cleaning up the ATT bull**** to remove the OTA app. As the previous poster mentioned being rooted with a custom recovery should be sufficient enough to halt the installation although if i were you i would seriously consider an alternative ROM or at the very least do some personal house cleaning.
