Attackers prey on inexperienced Google Chrome users.

Quote:
In a new post today on BitDefender's Malware City blog, the company warns Google Chrome users of malware-laced emails. Attackers are reportedly sending unsolicited messages informing users of a new Chrome extension that helps "better organize your documents" received via email. A seemingly innocent link is provided, and once clicked, users are redirected to a clone of the Google Chrome Extensions page.

That's my main browser. I'll keep my eye out for any suspicious email links. Thanks for the heads up!
