(Again with the _PR_MD_SEND blocking... This is the last one. For now at least.)

So fgjk4wvb.dll is heavily correlated with crashes with a _PR_MD_SEND signature, which is one of our topcrashes. Looking at the last three days of data for the 3.5.5 release for the _PR_MD_SEND signature:

      6% (72/1143) vs.   0% (123/93699) fgjk4wvb.dll (

      9% (88/997) vs.   0% (156/91800) fgjk4wvb.dll (

     14% (163/1158) vs.   0% (227/97540) fgjk4wvb.dll (

In all cases it's version that is the one correlated with the crash. (Gotta say that that's a suspicious looking version)

It's also correlated with the following crashes (11/23 data from Firefox 3.5.5)

  calc.dll@0x3a4a|EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (69 crashes)
     17% (12/69) vs.   0% (227/97540) fgjk4wvb.dll (

  rdolib.dll@0x3cc2|EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (62 crashes)
      8% (5/62) vs.   0% (227/97540) fgjk4wvb.dll (

  rdolib.dll@0x3f0a|EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (60 crashes)
     17% (10/60) vs.   0% (227/97540) fgjk4wvb.dll (

Not quite sure what is up with being correlated with crashes in other dlls. Could be that all of fgjk4wvb.dll, calc.dll, rdolib.dll are malware (likely), and people prone to get infected with one of them, are infected with others. Or could be that these dlls play poorly together.

Some simple googling showed that this is very likely a trojan of some sort.

I'd actually much rather we just use the DLL blocklist for this; dunno what the right component is for that, but reassigning to johnath.

That was what I intended yes. I think the conclusion last tuesday was that dll-blocking should go to the same component as addons-blocklists.

Motion carries. Clearly malware - no evidence of a legit vendor, fake-looking version number, and we're adding version-specific block to give a hypothetical vendor a way out. 

Thanks, Jonas.
Pushed to mozilla-central

We likely want this on the 1.9.2 branch, but there's currently no way to request blocking since this component/product doesn't have that flag :(

We also might want to let this bake a few days before taking on that branch

There doesn't seem to be a way to ask for 1.9.2 approval for this patch :(

But I think we should take this on 1.9.2

There is no way for QA to manual verify this blocked DLL. We would have to wait for the release and people upgrading to 3.6.2.
