The extensions were the new cover of malware. Luckily Google has already started to remove them.
Google is killing its responsible Chrome extensions browser inject advertising . Almost 200 million users exposed to the usual risks of using malicious software. They have all the details in your blog security.
More than a third of injecting advertising extensions have been classified as malware in a study sponsored by Google and conducted at the Universities of California and Berkley. 192 extensions have been malicious, affecting some 14 million users around. Google has killed these extensions and has added to its capabilities as new business techniques to detect this type extensions.
The study shows how widespread unfortunately these practices. More than 5% of visitors to use Google advertising injectors on their computers , half of these have at least 2 different nozzles and one in three of that group has more than 4. Ridiculous. You are browsing an Internet that is not real, full of advertisements also largely have a malicious function.
Google does not preclude such injectors advertising directly, but does impose certain restrictions as you can see in terms of service Chrome. It should be clearly stated that the extension will inject ads on the web.
Okay give freedom to developers, but do not think any user wants to see intruder and dubious purposes willingly advertising. Internet broke a few weeks ago after finding that the Superfish Lenovo injected not only advertising but highly vulnerable opened jumping HTTPS protection by enabling users were vulnerable to man-in-the-middle.
My advice is to never install extensions of this type, be careful what you install extensions and where they come
