Firefox blocks Microsoft apps
« on: October 20, 2009, 21:49:28 PM »
Two of Microsoft's add-ins where blocked from Mozilla when it was discovered that Microsoft silently installs plug-ins to Firefox allowing the launch of a malicious XAML browser application that could take over infected machines.
Thank God this is written in a Linux terminal.  ;D ;D ;D
