Trojan Uses Firefox Add-On

JULY 26, 2006 | A new trojan uses actual Mozilla Firefox browser extensions as an entryway into an unsuspecting user's machine.

The FormSpy spyware trojan was spotted again late yesterday making the rounds via a spam email, says Craig Schmugar, virus research manager for McAfee Avert Labs. McAfee issued an alert on the malware yesterday. It was first discovered by McAfee earlier in the week.

"The order of the information was repackaged and then spammed out again, but pointed to the same FormSpy trojan," Schmugar says.
