Adware/Malware in Chrome/Chromebook - How extensions are being exploited

This is an interesting read. Guess, adware/malware writers have opened a new avenue to harm users. Chrome's no notify auto update of extensions isn't helping.

Adware vendors buy Chrome Extensions to send ad- and malware-filled updates

I'm very careful about what I install and what I use. But this technique beat me once and many others as well (including the Ars author). Google need to do something about this.

P.S: Ignore this post's title. Just a try to write headlines like Verge. :p
