14 Jun Researcher Warns Against Spying Chrome Extensions
A security researcher and co-founder of Adguard Andrey Meshkov recently warned against Google Chrome extensions that spy on users and harvest their data.
Meshkov also warned that the spyware extensions will scrape all the user’s Facebook data immediately after the browser startup and may even attempt to parse purchase history.
After being alerted by Meshkov, Google took down the offending apps, such as Video Downloader For Facebook, Album & Photo Manager For Facebook, PDF Merge – PDF Files Merger, and Pixcam – Webcam Effects.
