Someone Hijacked MEGA Chrome Extension to Steal Users' Passwords

Warning! If you are using Chrome browser extension from the MEGA file storage service, uninstall it right now.

The official Chrome extension for the MEGA.nz cloud storage service had been compromised and replaced with a malicious version that can steal users' credentials for popular websites like Amazon, Microsoft, Github, and Google, as well as private keys for users' cryptocurrency wallets.

Well, that sucks. I wonder how many passwords they got. It looks to be partly Google's fault. Automatically signing extensions is a tremendously bad idea.
