How did Yontoo Extension get added without my knowledge

Posted

I noticed several domains, mysupercheap.com and ndsvc.com, always showing up in the NoScript block list. I traced it to an extension called Yontoo. I never installed this. How was it added without my knowledge? How can I block the adding of extensions without my permission?
