Forum mod spyware?



  • I have been using the extension for this forum for a long time, which inverts the colors.
    But yesterday I stop working and when looking at the extensions I get a message that was disabled for security reasons because I could read my data and control my downloads.
    Knowing that the creator is a user of this forum, I wanted to ask if it should be taken seriously or if it is a false alarm.



  • I'm pretty sure (99,9%) it is a false positive.
    I still trust and use it. @luetage



  • It's possible the creator made an update to the extension which requires additional permissions. Chrome would block this when it updated until you accept the new permissions.



  • Lol
    Yeah, I made several updates to the extension, one of the new features needs download permissions. I'm just writing a post for it. Don't be concerned, it's normal and expected behaviour. When you first install an extension, you have to approve of the permissions too.

    Something like that I already imagined and for this I am quite calm and I continue to use it. I was just surprised by a little :)
