New Vulnerabilities, Chrome extensions, and CLOUDFLARE CDN…AGAIN!!!

I try to stay up on what some of the most drastic compromises are, and today, WordFence put out another notice, this time about 8 compromised GOOGLE CHROME EXTENSIONS, and how those hacks where used to compromise websites via CLOUDFLARE again. This is the 2nd time Cloudflare has come up in a new discoveries list of compromises. (see my other post) I’m sure glad I never used it. I even thought about it after the last one, because I thought “well, they’ve plugged the holes, maybe it’s good now” …but luckily, I didn’t pursue that. This Cloudflare compromise is big, and affects 4.8 million users. And even though I do use “1” of them, probably the most common one, Web Developer extension, I think I’m ok, because it’s .4.8 that is affected, and I’m on version .5. So keeping things updated, obviously pays off. If you want to read the article and want to know what the other 7 extensions that are affected are, READ HERE:  https://www.wordfence.com/blog/2017/08/chrome-browser-extension-attacks/?utm_source=list&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=081717
