Mozilla Removes 23 Firefox Add-Ons That Snooped on Users

Mozilla removed today 23 Firefox add-ons that snooped on users and sent data to remote servers, a Mozilla engineer has told Bleeping Computer today.

The list of blocked add-ons includes "Web Security," a security-centric Firefox add-on with over 220,000 users, which was at the center of a controversy this week after it was caught sending users' browsing histories to a server located in Germany.

At the time, Mozilla engineers said they would review the add-on's behavior. But following the initial report, several users reported other add-ons exhibiting similar data collection patterns, some of which sent data to the same server where "Web Security" was also sending information.

qemu magic! another wow moment

I've been wanting to do VirtualBox again but didn't want to try and install it with the Slack pkgs....so I remembered some of you using QEMU.  I searched the Slackware 14.1 repository, downloaded and installed qmenu and aqemu.  Aqemu is a graphical interface to QEMU and KVM emulators.  I made a directory called "virtual" and copied a few iso's I had to that new directory.  Back at the terminal I entered "agemu" and viola! I'm seeing something similar to virtualbox.  Only problem was I hadn't a clue as to what needed to be done in order to get a virtual machine up and running.  So I searched youtube.....one of the hits brought me to https://www.youtube....h?v=JvkL3B475cE.  In his example he doesn't use aqemu.  What he did was:
qemu -hda virtualdisk.img -cdrom *.iso -boot d
I tried that but get an error message saying I didn't have qemu!  I did have qemu-kvm, so I tried:
qemu-kvm -hda virtualdisk.img -cdrom *.iso -boot d
And voila DSL booted up!  Cool!!  Now I just need to learn how to get control of my mouse when I end a session!  lol

update:  Just discovered how to get control of my mouse.....
