hi guys...just be aware of this web app, ext or whatever FF is calling it now...it comes with a fake FF manual update tab that dumps a nice little cryptominer into your browser...DAMIEN

https://fossbytes.com/image-previwer-firefox-extension-in-browser-crypto-miner/


Firefox add-on has been spotted that injects an in-browser miner. Detected by Bleeepingcomputer’s Lawrence Abrams, this extension is called Image Previewer. To infect the systems, the addon spreads via malicious websites that pretend to deliver a manual Firefox update.

Thanks for the warning!
You're not much better off with chrome/chromium though!
Guess you saw this from PCNetSpec sometime ago? https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php?topic=6473.0

Alaways be ware of add-ons and extensions! Don't install stuff if you don't know where it comes from and what it can do. "Nothing is secure out there!"...
But,... we all have to live with it!

Yeah thanks for the warning DAMIEN .. BUT...

Next time can you please start a new topic with a descriptive title .. nobody would think to look in an announcement for a new trusted user for this ;)

My fault .. I have kinda let this topic wander :-[
