MALWARE WARNING:Bettersurf

MALWARE WARNING:Bettersurf This addon for both firefox and google chrome has been installing itself randomly on lots of systems. Even those that have only gone to a limited amount of websites. 
This malware/addon appeared on my sister's chrome install today. 
Some developers that have workstations that only go on thier company's sites and development related sites have reported this addon installed itself.
There are lots of other reports of this from various users on various configurations.

UPDATE!!! I have found an anti virus client that was able to delete the source file where this malware came from called updater.exe and I am an affiliate of them so I am able to give you guys a HUGE discount on this!

Tech Quickies: Mozilla FirefoxOS/phone: No USA launch planned

So Mozilla is putting thier browser even more on the backburner for this?

and it's not even releasing in the US where it would be doing the best. They only plan on having it in"developing nations" which would mean EXTREMELY limiting market share and make it not seem worth the effort, and resource redirection. Mozilla has lost its way and it's mind!

They have been making dumb changes to Firefox for years, not fixing the bloat/crashing, Ignoring users suggestions/reports, and sitting with thier fingers in thier ears and now they misredirect thier allready drained resources for this and then blow it.

Mozilla has really lost it.
