Sneaky Microsoft plug-in puts Firefox users at risk

http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9139459/Sneaky_Microsoft_plug_in_puts_Firefox_users_at_risk

A couple of days ago, Mikrosoft added 13 'updates' to my system...

My Firefox just alerted me to the ''Windows Presentation Foundation' plug-in and disabled it.

I wonder how long ago it was when Bill Gates became corrupted?

Thank you for posting this! I mostly use the Firefox browser and I just checked and sure enough...there it was. I uninstalled it and it better stay gone. I am so sick of Microsoft!

You may have been better off to disable rather than uninstall. There were a couple of add-ons and uninstalling them required registry changes so Mozilla decided to just disable them.

I don't use the Internet Explorer browser for exactly this reason. I use Firefox and Opera.
