Massive spying on users of Google's Chrome


Recommended Posts

Yes, one must be very careful when selecting browser add-ons.  There are a lot of malicious ones out there which appear to provide valuable functionality but have built in tracking and/or adware as well, so a user may in fact end up compromising their security and privacy when they seek to safeguard it using such an extension.  There are a lot of 'fake' add-ons as well which imitate other more popular and reputable extensions.

Sadly there are plenty of bogus/malicious extensions/add-ons for Firefox as well, though I don't know if it's on the same scale as this Chrome discovery.  Users must be cautious when determining what to install on their systems, regardless of what browser/security software they might be using.

I will only trust the two I mentioned on any browser.
