PC Mag has this article about the above.

It can be found here.

Note that this extension is NOT available from the normal Mozilla source, nor can you download it by clicking on "get more extensions" in Ff.
Regards,

Thanks John. I hadn't checked it thru that far.

When I came across it, I thought it was worth passing on.

Cheers

It certainly was well worth passing on to our Firefox users (of whom I am one). It seems that the virus was sent out as an E-mail attachment. I only wished to reassure newer Ff users that they could certainly trust the extensions listed by Mozilla.
Thanks again for the heads up.
