FYI: Confirmation from the source who found the backdoored Firefox
Add-on. It is as we suspected, not part of an official OWASP thing but
interestingly enough because it came from the OWASP RSS aggregation, the
perception was initially that it was OWASP endorsed.
Time for a planet.owasp.org?

You are perfectly right, this Add-on wasn't part of any official OWASP
security add-on collection.
I just got this wrong because i got the link to it from the owasp.org
It was there due to this blog article:
that got aggregated in the RSS feed area.
for further information about this collection.
It is correct that i first misunderstood that this Add-on was part of an
official owasp-collection, but the mozilla guys pointed this out very fast.
Sorry if i caused you any trouble, i always have been a fan of the owasp
activities and did not mean to.
