Researchers at Avast Threat Intelligence have recently identified malware existing in popular add-ons for Facebook, Vimeo, Instagram, and others commonly used in browsers from Google and Microsoft. A total of 28 popular extensions for Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge browsers may contain malware and likely should be uninstalled by the more than 3 million people that already have downloaded them. The researchers discovered the threat in November but have stated that it could have gone unnoticed for years. Reviews on the Chrome Web Store show evidence of this, as reviews mention link hijacking from as far back as December 2018.
