    Hi Hemant, see the following regarding the nEnhancer extension – I have done security analysis and recorded webcast showing this extension is malicious malware. I too have run it for years and had no idea but recently it changed/elevated it’s permissions and I did not think anything until yesterday when the server that was mirroring all my web activity went down briefly – and as a network/security consultant with almost 30yrs under my belt I began to investigate. Without listing all details, this article seems to hit the nail on the head of exactly what I’ve found this malicious extension to be doing on all our systems silently, hidden:


    Anyway, here is the youtube video I shot live yesterday (8/14) showing both the live requests still being made from our machines every opening of Chrome to pull down the list of tens of thousands of URLs to hit hidden, but also redirect code and the actual code on my (and your) hard drive (BS.JS) housing verbatim code I found on a pastebin post labeled “Redirect Malware Extension” – coincidence because that’s exactly what this thing is doing now with it’s elevated permissions we all granted it recently:


    Hope this helps you and your viewers. Either way, right now you’re at the top of the Google list of articles pushing this as a viable (recommended) product with your endorsement, so I thought you’d want this new info to allow you to be fully informed as to whether you wish to continue to endorse and leave this article active.

    On a side note, I still use (and as of 8/14 deem safe) the Flix Plus by Lifehacker (I am not affiliated just a user) because it still only requires permissions to even read let alone change one site – NETFLIX and one additional info site used by Netflix.
