WARNING: Show-IP Version 2.7.6 installs additional Addon AdBeaver - I installed the software a couple of weeks ago. The addon worked well, the reviews had been positive.

Yesterday I was searching on Amazon and then an additional head layer was displayed advertising another shopping site to search the product for.

Honestly: I was shocked. A short research then showed the alliance with AdBeaver.

It is mentioned in the actual description now that AdBeaver is installed upon request / questionaire.

I have to say that I have not seen that during installation, and also never been asked for installation neither would I ever accept that.

It is definitive sensitive information where I spend my time and what I search for. Due to the fact that other users also complain, that the installation of the AdBeaver was not intended and without prompt my feeling is to been tricked and sold. Sad for the good addon, but I can't recommend it to install.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7.6).

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I don't remember installing this, have never used it, and now it tries to install adware (AdBeaver). Useless and potentially harmful, so I'm removing it. Considering the previous reports on bugs and spyware associated with it, I would recommend others to do the same and Mozilla to remove this from their add-on library.

worthless Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Addon tries to install adware every chance it gets cannot recommend to anyone anymore.. Used to be good now its worthless.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I strongly urge people to think twice before installing this addon because it has partnered with adware (AdBeaver). Beware of both addons and find something better that respects the user rather than trying to profit from them.

BEWARE! ShowIP is adware Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Used this add-on for a few years now, but now it has become adware after installing AdBeaver without me agreeing to it. I am uninstalling it.

This was usefull until it installed the AdBeaver extension unwillingly. It gathers information about it's users and installs spyware addons without you knowing.

ADWARE - BEWARE

I used to like this app. It turned into adware without warning.

SHAME SHAME - Don't use this. The developers violate your trust!

MalWare - AdBeaver Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Saw this extension but didn't remember when I installed it. Tried deleting it several times. It came back every time. Process of elimination, I deleted this app after I got an error alert about it taking to long to respond. Deleted AdBeaver AND ShowIP and it all cleared up.

DO NOT USE: Privacy concern Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This addon caught my eye while I was looking at packet traffic form my computer for a totally unrelated reason.

The addon continually transmits data to api.ip2info.org (server located in Germany at Hetzner datacenter) even WITHOUT any activity inside the browser.

Traffic is encrypted.

I assume the worst, so I deinstalled this addon.

v2.5: Contains adware, high privacy risks | v2.7.2: clean Rated 1 out of 5 stars

About v2.7.2:
The authors made this new version after users repeatedly reported the adware/malware problem. See here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1095472
Anyway, how much can we trust developpers who add such content to their extension on an automatic update without any warning/mention?
Please note the extension won't automatically upgrade from 2.5 to 2.7, you'll have to uninstall the bad version and then install the good one.
--
Les auteurs ont mis cette nouvelle version à disposition suite aux plaintes répétées des utilisateurs. Voir ici : https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1095472
Cependant, comment faire confiance à des développeurs capables d'ajouter un contenu pareil à leur module en profitant de la mise à jour automatique sans le moindre avertissement ?
À noter que le module ne se met pas automatiquement à jour de la version 2.5 à la version 2.7, il faut désinstaller la première et installer la deuxième.

------

About v2.5:
Used to be good and useful. Now calls panoramtech.net on every web page you visit: welcome to the ads, pop-ups, high privacy risks and phishing attempts world.
Here's the WOT scorecard for panoramtech.net: https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/panoramtech.net
Plus, the addon's privacy policy contains no mention of this adware.
Don't install.

A été un bon module fort utile. Appelle désormais panoramtech.net pour chaque page visitée : bienvenue dans le monde des pubs, pop-ups, gros risques pour le respect de la vie privée et de la confidentialité, ainsi que des tentatives d'hameçonnage.

Malware here too Rated 1 out of 5 stars

As reported previously, this extension now contains malware (or at least loads a page without my consent).
Given the lack of reaction, I have also reported this issue on Firefox's BTS: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1095472

This add-on has adware in it. It was a great add-on and I used for for many years.

Why put Malware in a Add-On for Developers Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Spent the last 3 hours debugging my jQuery Mobile site to try and find out why I had javascript from ads.panoramtech.net showing in firebug. Don't use this Add-On, who knows what it might inject.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I've been using this plugins for years, but since version 2.5 it's infected with malware. If you analize the version offered in this site, 2.4, it's clean, but Firefox will automatically upgrade to 2.5.

I searched for the XPI file in
/Users/myuser/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/default/extensions
ShowIP is listed there named with numbers, you might have to look for it, uncompress each xpi as zip files an look at the files in it to identify it.

Search for the string "panoramtech" you will find it in the file revjet-loader.js

if (!window.p_config) {
window.p_config = {
baseURL: 'https://ads.panoramtech.net/',
client: 'ksod3'
};
}

Mozilla please remove this addon from this site.

Was good then they thought to add Malware ? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Firebug was throwing some console errors that tipped me off that this crap addon was trying to inject ads onto the page (ads.panoramtech.net). Would not recommend, will never use anything from developer again.
