Firefox Spyware


icon
It seems that plenty of hackers are going to try to ruin our Firefox. Yes, you heard that right. Stiennon (Vice President of Threat Research at Webroot) has spoken to the media telling us that he expects there will be spyware for Firefox by the middle of the year! While we sit comfortably with our "0 Found" Ad-aware scans, hackers are at work on a new generation of spyware.

"Firefox was written for the existing world of Internet Explorer exploits, but it has its own vulnerabilities that will be exploited," says Stiennon.

I think the ultimate goal is money or some sort of notoriety. These morons are usually pretty proud of spreading their viruses around. It's odd that inconveniencing thousands or even millions of people is a source of pride for them. Kudos on being the biggest assholes in the world.

Well, most spyware is made by Russians. So, being Russian, I can safely say that it's a helluva lotta fun to see how far you can get! smile

Browsers and email clients will probably always be vulnerable unfortunately. tongue
