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! [emoji106][emoji106][emoji106]
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!"... [emoji6]
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 :-[

Team Peppermint are pleased to announce pin has accepted our invitation to take on the mantle of Trusted User status .. so please give him a big Pepperminty welcome :)

Congratulations, pin!  Peppermint keeps getting better and better!! :)
[T]here are a lot of people happily running Peppermint ICE which hasn't been receiving ANY updates for a while now .. and I personally would STILL consider that MUCH more secure than any version of Windows with up-to-date AV/Anti-malware ;)
