Hello,

The attached zip contains a sample of a malicious addon. It hijacks a victim's Facebook account and sends spam to their friends.

Thanks!

Hello,

We are the developers of the Webcake add-on.  The claims made by MarkH are false.  Webcake is not malicious.  It does not run on facebook.com.  And it certainly does not hijack Facebook accounts or spam their friends.

You can reach us directly at customersupport@getwebcake.com

Webcake Support
Webcake should already be blocked due to bug 938264. If it doesn't appear blocked to you, please let us know.
