Google To Block Malicious Chrome Extensions

Google will not allow users of its Chrome browser to install extensions that are not hosted in its online store.

Before now it has been possible to add the extras via many different websites but Google said this is often how malicious extensions infect a browser.

"Malware can change how browsers work by silently installing extensions on your machine that do things like inject ads or track your browsing activity," wrote Erik Kay, engineering director, in a blogpost about the change.
