Nano Adblocker + Nano Defender now malware - if you use either extension, remove them now.

Not sure if anyone here uses them or not. I used Nano defender as an anti-anti adblocker. Been sold to some dodgy lot that have turned them into malware. Remove them at once. This only affects Chrome, not the Firefox extension.

Thanks for the heads up, I don't use these myself, but that's some nasty bait and switch!

Yeah its pretty low. Looks like it was only targeting Instagram via a session hijack. I checked mine and I'd liked a load of random ****. I've taken the necessary precautions. :rolleyes:
