New Chrome Tab Opens Chrome-updates.win

ALERT: Beware of the new Chrome extension "Hotspot Shield VPN Free Proxy"

  • Each time you try to create new tab, the extension will redirect to a phishing website: https://chrome-updates.win/s.html
  • Also, it loads too many ads on websites such as Google search results page and IMDb.com among other websites.
  • This applies for free users, however using paid Elite user account does not change the behavior
