Plugin Whitelist Request: k
<<Please supply the following information for new plugin whitelist requests>> Plugin name: kPoint Plugin Vendor: kPoint Technologies Pvt. Ltd. Point of contact: firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com Brief Description: kPoint plugin is used for desktop sharing/screen capturing and uses system level apis to take screenshots of the desktop window and compresses that data using codecs. Current version: == Windows versions == 126.96.36.199 == Mac versions == 188.8.131.52 == Linux 32 and 64 bit versions == 184.108.40.206 Download URL: http://demos.kpoint.com/plugin_instructions (Download the file under 'Screen Sharing plugin' section). Sample URL of plugin in use: skreen.me Plugin details: <<For each affected operating system, please copy the plugin information from about:plugins in Firefox>> about:plugins output -------------------- == Windows == kPoint Plugin File: npkPointPlugin.dll Path:C:\Users\demo\AppData\Roaming\kPointTechnologiesPvtLtd\kPointPlugin\220.127.116.11\npkPointPlugin.dll Version: 18.104.22.168 State: Enabled kPoint Plugin MIME Type Description Suffixes application/x-npkpoint kPoint Plugin == Mac == kPoint Plugin File: kPointPlugin.plugin Path: /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/kPointPlugin.plugin Version: kPointPlugin 22.214.171.124 State: Enabled kPoint Plugin MIME Type Description Suffixes application/x-npkpoint kPoint Plugin (We have only one plugin which works for both 64 and 32 bit Mac). == Linux 32 and 64 bit == kPoint Plugin Name: kPoint Plugin File: npkPointPlugin-7.1.so Path: /home/demo/.mozilla/plugins/npkPointPlugin-7.1.so Version: 126.96.36.199 State: Enabled MIME type Description File extensions application/x-npkpoint kPoint Plugin (Though installers for 64 and 32 bit linux are different, the above description is the same). Are there any variations in the plugin file name, MIME types, description, or version from one release to the next? - The version numbers changes depending on the release. Are there any known security issues in current or older versions of the plugin? - No. kPoint Plugin is built using firebreath , which to date has never had a known security vulnerability. Plan to move away from NPAPI ---------------------------- We are yet to finalize on an approach but we are researching js-ctypes to communicate between the application and the browser.
In Firefox 33 we are building screen-sharing into the browser natively with WebRTC. In the meantime, we believe than an opt-in experience for users to activate this kind of native plugin is the right UI, and so we are not accepting this request.
