Thx for your response, sorry for the patchy info.
A friend of mine installed this into Safari. (2007 Mac Mini, 10.5) She claimes her Mac slowed down since installing. And it will not go away after deleting the plug-in. Can't find anything in /library/etc.
I can't find any info on the internet, most sites with info seem dodgy. As if they were created by Mywebface.
I did find this: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091010124854AATC4pk
Can't prove it's a Trojan, but: I have a bad feeling about this.
Posted here to see if any of you boffins knows more.
Thanks for your time.

Where did your friend find this software? I do see software out there called "myWebFace" that looks like junk, but not malware. It installs a browser toolbar, but it doesn't look like it works on a Mac except in Firefox. There's no mention I can find anywhere of it working in Safari. Trying to visit home.mywebface.com in Safari just gives me this:
If you are mistaken and your friend actually installed this software in Firefox, removal instructions are here:

Thx for replying.
I'm pretty sure it is in Safari: it's my old Mac Mini and set it up for her. And I don't like Firefox.
I'll check to make sure, and will ask her were she got it.

It is actually in Safari. She downloaded the program by clicking on a banner on the Guardian.co.uk website.
I'm not so sure it's malware anymore. But it sure is annoying.
Thx for the advice, i'll disable these extensions.
