Details

A Firefox installer distributed from http://firefox.begin.pro/en/?p=US-SOFT bundles a large number of malware extensions. One of them even hides the presence of any add-ons from the extension manager.

IDs:

OKitSpace@OKitSpace.es
extension@FastFreeConverter.com
firefox@luckyleap.net
linksicle@linksicle.com
{81b13b5d-fba1-49fd-9a6b-189483ac548a}
{906000a4-88d9-4d52-b209-7a772970d91f}
{B21F5E31-B8E8-41CD-B74C-168A71A10E49}
It also looks like {81b13b5d-fba1-49fd-9a6b-189483ac548a}, which is for the PassWidget add-on, may be randomly generated.
Should this site be reported to legal?
That's what bug 936260 is about.
Block 475 (ID {B21F5E31-B8E8-41CD-B74C-168A71A10E49}) has been reverted as we have been contacted by the owners of the extension (CBS Interactive) and they had already terminated their relationship with the distributor of the dubious installer.
