@bitstamp Confirmed. I looked at the source code. It replaces QR code images on bitcoin exchanges with its own addresses.
Pursuant to, as a result of the installation of the expansion could suffer mainly clients of such exchanges as Bitstamp and BTC-e, as well as a cloud service of mining Hashnest.

Currently, the expansion is extracted from the Chrome Web Store. Tthe danger remains, it is yet able to use by unsuspecting users.

Recall that the new malware virus has also recently been discovered that can make physical theft of cryptocurrency, replacing the addresses of users.
