An exploit in Mozilla's Firefox browser has been found that can hijack the software and monitor submit-and-click events.

The Infostealer.Snifula, which is based on XPCOMs (cross-platform component object models) that developers use to create extensions for the Firefox browser, installs malicious Trojans that are loaded at startup. The Trojan captures contents of form-submission events, including passwords, and forwards them to its main process where it is sent to the remote attacker..
