Ars Technica: Google Chrome extensions with 500,000 downloads found to be malicious

Ars Technica: Google Chrome extensions with 500,000 downloads found to be malicious. “Researchers have uncovered four malicious extensions with more than 500,000 combined downloads from the Google Chrome Web Store, a finding that highlights a key weakness in what’s widely considered to be the Internet’s most secure browser. Google has since removed the extensions.” Wasn’t it just at the beginning of the year that Bleeping Computer mentioned an extension that was mining cryptocurrency? This seems to be happening a lot more lately.
