Google burns down more than 500 Chrome extensions

Google has removed more than 500 Chrome extensions in response to a report from a security researcher. The researchers spotted a set of similarly coded Chrome extensions ’that infected users and exfiltrated data through malvertising while attempting to evade fraud detection on the Google Chrome Web Store’. About 1.7 million Chrome users had these extensions installed.

Between all these data stealing Chrome extentions, Google still cannot seem to get rid of the largest thief and syphoner of user data, Google Chrome.

Google ran its corrupt course! It’s time for Americans to smarten up and dump the browser mogul. Google doesn’t care one bit about American users much less international users. Google has been caught RED HANDED selling your information which you never authorized! Time to try another browser.
