Developers… developers… developers! *sigh*
Whether the developers made a mistake or playing to see if it’ll go unnoticed by pushing the Ask Toolbar when user opted-out… the security community will not have to watch out only for illegitimate installers but also legitimate installers.
The above is after Jintan over at http://www.cybertechhelp.com/ bring the issue on Foxit Reader where Ask Toolbar/BHO continue to install, even after the user ‘opted-out’.
They somehow fixed now the installer by respecting user’s choice on the installation or not of Ask Toolbar.
Posted too at Products with Ask Toolbar topic over at Calendar of Updates.
Edit: BTW, RealPlayer installer will now offer Google Chrome and it’s pre-checked. Report is here.
