LXer: Google's Firefox has plug-in security flaw

Published at LXer:

SEARCH ENGINE outfit Google's new extension for “safe browsing for Firefox” might protect you from spoofing, but is a security risk, according to a security expert. Nitesh Dhanjani said that Google claims that its Firefox extension protects you from phishing or spoofing. It works by using a blacklist containing pages that have been identified as suspicious and/or misleading based on automated detection or user reports. It also examines pages' content and structure in order to catch potentially misleading pages.
