Re: Rogue Chrome Extension

There is a Webroot Blog about this but to be sure you can Submit a Support Ticket to find out for sure as I don't use Chrome.

 

Also this is from the Identity Shield

"Isolate untrusted browser add-ons from data - Blocks a browser add-on (browser helper object) from stealing data. While most browser add-ons are legitimate, some can display ads, track your Internet activity, or hijack your home page."

 

Also more info here: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/12/23/google_bans_auto_install_chrome_extensions/print.html

 

HTH,
