Mozilla retracts malware accusation against Firefox Addon

Six days ago, Mozilla had reported in a security notice that two experimental add-ons for its Firefox browser contain trojans that affect Windows machines. Mozilla has since retracted that accusation against one of the extensions. In a statement posted to its blog last night, Mozilla said:

“We’ve worked with security experts and add-on developers to determine that the suspected trojan in Version 4.0 of Sothink Video Downloader was a false positive and the extension does not include malware.”

Wow! One would think that work would have been done BEFORE defaming a company.
