[Owasp-board] OWASP tied to trojaned Firefox Add-on

I have no idea that the ones on the Live CD nor any recommended on the
OWASP site are not trojaned.
I am certain that I never included the "Mozilla Sniffer" Add-on on the
Live CD. That was the one that was recently found to be trojaned.
That's the extent of what I was saying in my previous email.
Considering the fact that there are no MD5 sums to check, no PGP/GPG
signatures to verify, its pretty much impossible to know with confidence
that you're getting "good" or even the right code from FF Add-ons and
any number of other software packages you can download today.
Hopefully the code reviews that Mozilla is putting in place will help -
at least for the FF Add-ons.
As an old school Linux guy, I really like when I get signed packages
with hashes of the downloads. nmap has been doing that for years and I
wish more people would follow that lead.
My 2 cents.
