    Hi! I'm always behind on these things. I just reset Firefox and noticed that WOT was no longer working. Tried to go on Web and down load it. Couldn't find the down load. Done some more searching and I came up with this news. Not real sure where I should post this, so posting it here. Move to where appropriate or please advise if this is known or old news. It's new me!
    'Web Of Trust' Browser Extension Cannot Be Trusted | News & Opinion | PCMag.com
    Not all browser extensions can be trusted, though, and an investigation by German TV channel NDR has uncovered a serious breach of privacy by the Web Of Trust (WOT) service, which over 140 million Web surfers trust to help keep them safe online.

    Spiegel Online reports that Mozilla has already removed the WOT extension from its Firefox Add-ons page due to guideline violations. It seems likely other software that supports WOT will follow. Anyone currently using the WOT extension should seriously consider whether they wish to continue doing so. WOT also has a mobile app, which won't be immune to this data collection.
