Giant company Google crypto has made a move to ensure the safety of its users. A plugin for the Google Chrome Internet browser that targets users of crypto-money sites such as Blockchain.com or MyEtherWallet has been removed. It is alleged that the plug-in has attracted the attention of users and defrauded them for alleged airdrops on the crypto money exchange Huobi. 200 different victims were taken into custody after the complaints made to the company.
Google Chrome plug-in targeting the users of crypto money is said to be the name of the NoCoin. According to the news released by Cointelegraph Google has been downloaded 230 times before users have deleted the add-in.
A crypto money user named Harry Denley creates a database called bu EtherscamDB a for scams in this area. According to Denley, attackers have made the NoCoin plug-in appear as if it were protecting users from crypto-money spyware or spy mining. Denley says:
Initially the plugin seems to be doing what it should do. It detects various security issues and comes up with a good user interface that looks safe.
User Data Targeted
Malicious activities are hiding behind the well-visible face of the plugin. The add-on requests users to access private keys of crypto-money wallets such as MyEtherWallet and Blockchain.com. The private keys are then sent to the attackers so that the victims' wallets are emptied. In addition, the plug-in Huobi cryptographic exchange over the airdrop, arguing that the exchange in exchange for distributing ERC20 tokens claimed to attract users. Fortunately, Google has removed the add-on.
