The most prominent browser in terms of security is Google Chrome and its main week point is extension that has been identified again in the browser.

An extension named ‘Tiempo en Colombia en vivo’ had been hidden in Google’s Extension Library for around 19 days. If it is included in users’ Chrome, it itself gets carried out to different YouTube video pages and remains in stealing information.

The most terrible thing is that this extension redirects the extensions page, so that it can’t be removed easily.

Another terrifying fact is that Google not only permits such harmful extension to access their Chrome Store, rather they delayed for 19 days to remove the extension despite being informed about the harmful facts.

Google’s such apathy regarding removal of the malware has been noticed again and again. Therefore, awareness regarding extension usage is really essential.
