Microsoft Whilst it's not okay in Microsoft's eyes for Google to install a plugin into Internet Explorer, increasing the potential surface area of attack, when Microsoft do it to Firefox, it's a different matter. Now a security hole has been found in a plugin that Microsoft have been silently installing into Firefox.

Sorry but .net is too useful as a platform and is a security improvement over traditional Win32 c++ development.

This is a case that shows we need better security when it comes to plugins. If you actually wanted to keep developers away from a type of plugin for security reasons you would have a better case with flash.
