I would like to install the Dictionary Pop-Up addon for Firefox. I usually don't install any addons, but this one looks especially tempting.
I could not find any information on the Mozilla page, whether or not this addon is authorized/approved/reviewed.
What are the chances that an addons mozilla.org on is malicious? And, if it was malicious, how are usually malicious addons discovered? I mean, if 30.000 people already downloaded it, is it less likely that it is a malware? Would it have been discovered already?
I have used this specific addon as an example, but I am interested in this problem in general.
