Malware disguised as a legitimate Firefox add-on steals your bank passwords
PC Adviser flags warning first given by the BitDefender internet security firm
Its path onto PCs is via downloads of fake GreaseMonkey add-on software and as a ‘passenger’ with downloads of unsigned / unverified software. It starts to gather information as soon as the browser is opened.
The advice is only to download GreaseMonkey from known safe sites and to be very cautious about downloading unsigned / unverified software.
Firefox is probably been targeted because a larger percentage of internet users are now using it as they standard browser.
Living Streams comment: It is our recommendation to never store bank logins / passwords in browsers. It is also good practice to use the master password feature within Firefox.
