Fake Adblock Plus add-on spotted in Google Chrome
10 October 2017, 05:39 | Jodi Jackson
37000 Chrome users downloaded a fake Adblock Plus extension
The extension has now been taken down, but while up, it was listed directly next to the real product created by Adblock Plus, and was downloaded by around 37,000 users, leaving them potentially vulnerable to a variety of cybercrime.
Situations like this happen because the process of uploading extensions on the Chrome Web Store is automated and Google employees only intervene when the extension is reported.
"Legitimate developers just have to sit back and watch as Google smears them with fake extensions that steal their good name". These popular keywords allowed the fake extension to pop up in unrelated search queries. Taking advantage of this, fraudulent developers pushed a fake version of the Adblock Plus extension into the Chrome Web Store, bypassing Google's checks and filters.
This latest incident of a phony Chrome extension comes as Google is overhauling Chrome, adding new features and different visual screens.
At the time, SwiftOnSecurity reported, nearly 37,000 people had already downloaded this application. He said the quality ad-blocking third parties should not have a problem with Google's own ad blocker.
