Searching for why error messages fill up my logs, found myself reading about "superfish"

Find 5761 Add-Ons show available matching superfish

IF superfish (apparently does) break HTTPS security, is Mozilla locating the "superfish" apps to be removed ?


On my system was the user installed app: Youtube Downloader 4K - Video Downloader 5.7.4.1-signed

The App: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/media-downloader/

Version 5.7.4.1-signed Info April 23, 2015 Released under Mozilla Public License, version 2.0

After removed the users app, can we prevent them being installed again ?

  1. 1. Removing the application fixes problem for now.
  2. 2. How to prevent other users re-installing ?

OS: openSUSE 13.2 Gnome (Linux)
