@killerclick: if you want to keep running faulty add-ons, you can - they just ensure that you KNOW it's buggy/unsafe, when they turn it off through blacklists.

Why would people download this add-on in the first place? Well, I think if people can be content with their iphone 4, they could download such crap as well.

Outsource prison... I like this idea, a lot of them would probably do it for like 1/10th the cost we pay here now.

Maybe it could be called Bantanemo Guay or something like that, I can't see any problem at all.

It'd have been interesting to see what the add-on claimed to do since as someone mentioned earlier, it doesn't sound like something anyone would want. Unless there's another exploit that installs add-ons remotely or maybe someone wrote it to install on someoneelse's computer that they had physical access to.
Interesting, but not interesting enough for me to use the interweb to find the answer.

[citation][nom]ksampanna[/nom]That's the problem with Open Source[/citation]

Yeah, it's always scary to see a company fix a problem instead of putting it off until the next big security patch.... Oh, wait
