AdBeaver showing up on student computers

It looks like this adware on the master image, and it’s now on a lot of school images.

The plugin file itself is named adbeaver@adbeaver.org.xpi and it resides in
/users/student/Application Support/Firefox/blabla.default/extensions

Here are the commands to push out via ARD to remove it from student:

sudo rm -rf /users/student/library/Application\ Support/Firefox/Profiles/*.default/extensions/adbeaver@adbeaver.org.xpi

sudo rm -rf /users/student/library/Application\ Support/Firefox/Profiles/*.default/adbeaver-log.txt

I also made a package installer if you want to try it via Meraki
http://staff.4j.lane.edu/~grubic_j/install/RemoveAdBeaver.pkg

It’s kind of a hack way to access that Firefox profiles folder, we’ll make a newer one if need be.
