I did not expect the #Honey browser extension to provide great privacy. Still, finding four (!) different mechanisms allowing the Honey server to run arbitrary code on any website exceeded my expectations by far. It even uses AES for obfuscation.
@WPalant I don't like the sound of this...I think I had a similar extension based in Russia a while back.
@calculsoberic Yes, there certainly are more extensions like this. But this one claims to have 17 million users, a claim that matches reported numbers in Mozilla Add-ons and Chrome Web Store…
@WPalant wtf? that's really creepy! I would want to know things like that before installing an extension.
@WPalant thank you! I'll look into those.
