  1. Hi PeterCascio The extension was found injecting a remote script which breaches Mozilla Extension rules. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1549444 So this is not a false postive detection but now considered PUP.
  2. Hi pssnn Thank you for reporting this and confirmed it is a false positive detection. This will get fixed on the next update cycle today.

    Hi , Detection was created for the extension initially as it breached Mozilla privacy criteria and in our opinion that constituted it becoming Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP). However they have since modified/updated their extension (21/02/2019) to comply with Mozilla extension privacy rules so we will be removing detection for their current firefox extension. However we will remain vigilant and should they relapse then we would relist the offending extension(s) again in the future.
  4. Hi Rupert24 This is not a false positive detection as Mozilla have blacklisted the extension for privacy violations. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1478731
  5. Hi gawainuk and welcome to the Malwarebytes support forums Thank you for reporting this and confirmed it is a false positive detection. It will be fixed on the next update cycle today.
  6. Hi swanny2070 and welcome back to the Malwarebytes support forums. This time around the PUP.Optional is no longer a False Positive. On the 27thJuly 2018 Mozilla blacklisted the extension for the following reason -> "Violations of the data collection policies" https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1478731 If Mozilla are blacklisting the extension then it would definitely be considered Potentially Unwanted Program.

  15. Hi This is not a f/p detection. We are detecting the OpenCandy client dll file which is present within the installer. https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/fcb60c2cb911e3b75bc730df2612896df8f0efe777107b78ea126a52a2f7c1ac/analysis/1541297182/
