I found this article by accident this morning.

Since it's on CNet, I have a tendancy to trust it.

But you should make up your own mind, obviously.…..31-12.html

Here's a snippet of the article so you can decide if

you want to go to their site to read the whole thing.

Firefox browser add-on site for containing

malware. Sothink Web Video Downloader 4.0

and all versions of Master Filer were found to

contain Trojan horse code aimed at Windows
