This add-on works perfectly with Firefox 4 RC!!! (Unfortunately, the Add-on Compatibility Reporter is not providing the ability to provide that feedback.)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.3). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Malware Search: Indispensible! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Background: I am a Microsoft MVP and long-time member of the on-line security community, providing help to people removing malware from their computer. Log analysis is not an automatic process. The entries in the logs must be carefully researched. The wrong advice can result in a computer being essentially unrecoverable without a complete reinstall.
I have been using the Malware Search Firefox Add-on since it was "alpha". Being able to select a questionable CLSID, DLL or other entry in a HijackThis (or other log) and target the appropriate database to search is a valuable tool and time-saver for use in analyzing logs. The developer is very receptive to suggestions and additions to the Add-on.
I highly recommend this Add-on to anyone conducting log analysis and advising on malware removal.
