Washington: The Mozilla Foundation, which provides internet`s most popular browser, Firefox, has alleged that surveillance software company Gamma International Ltd. has hijacked the Firefox brand to secretly sell their electronic espionage products.

Several samples of Gamma`s FinFisher spy software have been found by researchers who claim that the software is sold in disguise of a Firefox file to convince computer users into believing that the virus is harmless.

According to the report, Mozilla has officially demanded Gamma to end their `abusive` practice.

Britain`s Gamma has recently established itself in the market of surveillance software, the report added.
