Just when Mozilla could not end up with any more bad news… or so we thought, that is. Seems that while the Mozilla devs have been hard at work making sure that Firefox 3.6 was to be all it could be, things were not all well on the add-on front.
According to this, one infected Mozilla add-on managed to slip through Mozilla’s safeguards. If this is freaking you out right now, I can only come to one of two conclusions. First, you are using Chrome and simply don’t care. Second option, you are insane and entirely too trusting.
Based on the number of installations seen in the article, Sothink Web Video Downloader 4.0 and all versions of Master Filer were infected with Trojan horses designed to hijack Windows PCs. Yes kids, all of the security suite stuff in the universe is not always enough. Sometimes you are simply going to find yourself up a creek without a paddle.
What do you think? Is this a sign of things to come or, perhaps, merely a friendly reminder than no single browser is immune to attack? Hit the comments; let’s hear your thoughts.
