eldavojohn writes “Mozilla has admitted to wrongly accusing Sothink of distributing a video downloader with a trojan virus as a Firefox addon. From their official blog: ‘We’ve worked with security experts and add-on developers to determine that the suspected trojan in Version 4.0 of Sothink Video Downloader was a false positive and the extension does not include malware.’ Before you go download that addon, however, keep in mind that Sothink has come under fire before for GPL violations and dishonesty.”
