Today I noticed that my google Chrome (Version 47.0.2526.111 m) has some extensions I didn't install on my own. And I'm pretty sure that I didn't install them on any of my devices I'm using (Win7, Ubuntu 14.04, Android, OSX).
Those two extensions are:
- uMatrix - which is actually a great security extension.
- Virtual Keyboard - I suppose that is also a nice thing to deal with keyloggers and co. If this is not a keylogger itself.
So now I'm asking myself how did this extensions appear in my browser? I don't think that its due to chrome update or something. I'm also using two step verification and I didn't notice any strange behavior on my mobile phone. So maybe some of you guys experienced the same problem? Or maybe someone knows how this can happen? Did somebody hack my account? So many questions... :)
I left my PC (running Win7) turned on over the night at work but I locked it super + L. Nobody knows my password (I hope). And one strange thing is that I had a running instance of Virtual Machine. And today after logging in no instances were running. The password I use is a pretty strong one (over 15 characters with numbers and capital letters)
