MS hides Firefox extension in toolbar update

Firefox 2

Jan (666) writes "As part of its regular Patch Tuesday, Microsoft released an update for its various toolbars, and this update came with more than just documented fixes. The update also installs an add-on for Internet Explorer and an extension for Mozilla Firefox, both without the user's permission.

Microsoft ? Hum... not sure ? (1)

I've just noticed this extension also on a windows VM that was not updated for a while, and it is enabled on Firefox and IE. And in IE, the published is "(not verified) Sigot, Inc", which is the same publisher as the PdfForge Toolbar.
So, I am note sure microsoft is the one to blame for this.

Hum... I've just noticed I have a second different search plugin, and the second one is from Microsoft. But I confirm that I have automatic updates turned off.
