Google takes down 22 more extensions that were impersonating popular crypto wallets

posted 22 days ago
Google removed another batch of Chrome extensions that had been impersonating popular crypto wallet services like Ledger and MetaMask, a month after removing nearly 50.

The 22 malicious scam extensions were falsely claiming to be affiliated with MyEtherWallet, Trezor, and Electrum in addition to Ledger and Metamask. For example, a fake extension might create a user experience that is exactly identical to one of these services in order to trick users into giving up their private keys and mnemonic phrases.
