Tech evangelism may not be the best place for this. The Ad-aware from Lavasoft detects the 1.7.2 version of mozz.dll as part of the spware iWon. This was tested using Ad-aware SE 1.01 with definition file SE1R1 09.08.2004 This file is typically installed at C:\Program Files\Common Files\mozilla.org\GRE\1.7.2_2004080302\mozz.dll This file appears nearly identical to other 1.7 versions of mozz.dll I had which were not flagged, all are 39088 bytes and differ only in a few words that I think are compiler build-time artifacts.
I should add that iWon is an IE Browser Helper Object (BHO) which 1) wouldn't work in mozilla, and 2) couldn't be hidden in a same-sized tiny mozz.dll while leaving mozz.dll still functional.
It appears they have already fixed it; although I don't use it, so I can't be sure. See: snews://secnews.netscape.com:563/41194E93.email@example.com
I confirm the 1.7.2 GRE mozz.dll is no longer flagged as iWon using the updated definitions in "SE1R2 10.08.2004"
