Google Stops Displaying Security Warnings in Microsoft Edge, No Longer Recommends Switching to Chrome – Disposable mail news

Google has stopped advising Microsoft Edge users to switch to Chrome for a more secure experience as the browser extensions crafted for Google’s Chrome web browser are also suitable for the new Microsoft’s new Edge browser based on Chromium.

It appeared like Google stoked the flames of browser wars when it subtly encouraged Edge users to shift to Chrome by displaying warnings of potential security threats. The alert displayed by Google read that it “recommends switching to Chrome to use extensions securely”. A developer at Edge revealed that the new Microsoft Edge is designed to effectively safeguard its users from malicious extensions, that said, Edge already had Windows Defender Smart Screen and Unwanted Application protection built-in.

Whenever a user visited the Chrome Web Store via the new Microsoft Edge, Google displayed a message in yellow at the top of the webpage recommending users to switch to Chrome in order to use extensions with added safety. However, seemingly, as soon as Google realized that greeting users with a warning message which clearly implied that Microsoft Edge is less secure of a browser is not making them look good, the tech giant softened and decided to take the alert down. Not only that, Google went a step ahead and replaced the previously displayed warning with a fresh one that tells users that now they can add extensions to Microsoft Edge from the Chrome Web Store.

However, still, officially only a few extensions are supported by Microsoft Edge as the installation of all these extensions for the first will seem to be a bit complex. Users need to enable ‘allow extensions’ from other stores via the settings page. On attempting to do that, Microsoft warns that it doesn’t verify extensions downloaded from third-party stores and cautions that doing the same may cause performance issues in Edge. Then it suggests users get verified extensions from Microsoft Edge add-ons site. As soon as the users allow extensions by clicking on ‘Allow’, they will be able to add extensions to Edge from Chrome Web Store.

Google Chrome Extension, Shitcoin Wallet found stealing passwords and crypto-wallet keys – Disposable mail news


MyCrypto platform, reported that Shitcoin Wallet, a Google Chrome extension was injecting JavaScript code on web pages , in order to steal passwords and keys from cryptocurrency wallets.

 The extension, Shitcoin Wallet, Chrome extension ID: ckkgmccefffnbbalkmbbgebbojjogffn, was launched last month on December 9.

With Shitcoin Wallet, users managed their Ether (ETH) coins, and Ethereum ERC20-based tokens — tokens usually issued for ICOs (initial coin offerings) either from the browser or by installing a desktop app.

 Malicious Behavior with the extension

 Harry Denley, Director of Security at the MyCrypto platform, discovered that the chrome extension isn’t what it promises to be. He found malicious code within the extension.

In a blog, zdnet reported that, “According to Denley, the extension is dangerous to users in two ways. First, any funds (ETH coins and ERC0-based tokens) managed directly inside the extension are at risk.
 Second, the extension also actively injects malicious JavaScript code when users navigate to five well-known and popular cryptocurrency management platforms. “

 Danley, said that the extension traffics all the keys on its system to a third party website at erc20wallet[.]tk.

 The malicious code works by the following process

 1. The user install the chrome extension Shitcoin Wallet.
 2. The extension request permission to inject the malicious JavaScript code to 77 websites.
 3. If the user navigates to any of these 77 websites, it injects an additional code .
 4.The code activates on five websites: MyEtherWallet.com, Idex.Market, Binance.org, NeoTracker.io, and Switcheo.exchange
 5. After activation, the code saves the user’s login credentials, keys and other data then siphon it to a third party.

 It is not constructively clear yet if the Shitcoin Wallet team is responsible for the malicious behavior or a third party infiltrated the extension. Shitcoin Wallet team is silent on the allegations and have yet to give any comments on the matter.


 Desktop App

Both 32-bit and 64-bit installers are available for the user to download on the extension’s official website.
VirusTotal, a website that aggregates the virus scanning engines of several antivirus software makers, showed that both versions were clean.
But on a warning note, the desktop app may contain the code or something even worse.
