Spyware disguises itself as Firefox extension

by Antony

SillyDog701's security expert Juha-Matti Laurio informed us that Spyware (Trojan) can disguises itself as a legitimate Firefox extension. Currently, the reported spyware pretends itself to be a legitimate numberedlinks extension.

MozInfo701 would like to suggest users pay attention to the source of extensions when installing. For more detail on this issue, please check this thread in SillyDog701 Message Centre.
