+ - Microsoft Sabotaging Firefox With Sneaky Add-Ons 4

Submitted by Slashdot
Slashdot (1164927) writes "The Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1, unleashed in February, forces an undisclosed Firefox extension on Windows users, which not only injects a serious security vulnerability into Firefox (also present in Internet Explorer), but it disables the uninstall button, meaning the only way to get rid of it, is to edit the Windows registry.

**you may wish to remove this extension with all due haste**
