Google’s Chrome (and derivatives) is one of the more popular browsers on the market. It reached the height of popularity via a well-orchestrated marketing push, dissatisfaction with Microsoft, and being one of the faster and more secure browsers (at the time). However, the popularity of the browser and some less than stellar security policies in the Chrome Web Store have made it a nice target for attackers.
Goggle recently removed a total of 32 malicious extensions from the store with downloads possibly totaling 75 million.
