Hi,

New Tab by Yahoo is labelled as WinYahoo:

PUP.Optional.WinYahoo, C:\USERS\USER\APPDATA\ROAMING\MOZILLA\FIREFOX\PROFILES\WCUDKK18.TEST2\EXTENSIONS\JID1-G80EC8LLEBK5FQ@JETPACK.XPI, No Action By User, [117], [245051],1.0.711

Other Yahoo add-ons from Mozilla Add-ons doing similar tasks and being distributed not only from AMO are not detected as such.

HI

interesting topic ~ so this add-ons it look like made by Yahoo , and now Microsoft are doing the same thing with a Bing toolbar  . a new one that have to hijacked your web-browser and search provides to BIng and when you start searching in Google you’ll got locked up and you can’t use Google search engine anymore because Bing .... and then you’ll be redirect to BIng search engine when you trying to use others search engine/search provides ! and even Bing is still not detected by malwarebytes .
