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.
