Trojan as Fake Google Chrome Extension
As more and more people are using Google Chrome and its functionalities to browse the net and to organize information, cybercriminals have set their minds on exploiting this environment to spread malware and steal users’ information.
...Google Chrome users receive an unsolicited e-mail which announces that a new extension of their favorite browser has been developed to facilitate their access to documents from e-mails.
An apparently unsuspicious link is provided, and the recipients are advised to follow it in order to download the new extension. Once they click the link, they are redirected to a look-alike of the Google Chrome Extensions page, which, instead of the promised extension, provides them with a fake application that infects their systems with malware.
