The dangers of malicious browser extensions

Be careful with what you install.

Recently, I came across a project that promises to give you cashback on each transaction — including trading on centralized exchanges — and all you need to do is install a browser extension to get that 5% cashback.

If it’s too good to be true, it’s probably false.

At the time of discovery, their extension — Chrome extension ID liachincjagnalnmahhaioaogkngbmhf (CCB Cash)— had 181 users on it. The extension has now been removed from the store.
