This was just to show that we all need to take care with what we install ....

It is not to say that all Firefox users are being spied upon.

Like using a fake MBAM, (as you say) that some get suckered into, it shows we need to check Versions and Add-Ons.

The HJT / Malware area is full of people that hit the wrong button without fully checking it out first.

Even I have done the wrong thing in the past, just because it looked like the right version.

This was only posted for people to check their Versions etc.
