"Mozilla on Friday said that it had removed two Firefox add-ons from its Web site because they installed malware.
"Two add-ons in the experimental section of addons.mozilla.org were found to be containing malware," Mozilla said on its security blog.
"These were not originally detected with the anti-malware scanning tools that we have been using. We have since increased
the number of scanning tools, and will be taking additional steps to minimize the risk of further incidents.""
