Google Chrome extension that does Phishing
The fake Google Chrome extension that GHacks discovered and performs Phishing It is Microsoft Authenticator, which has no modality in that browser, so its addition to this modality is false. The only way to find it is through the Microsoft Store.
The way to attack and do Phishing is to ask the user to enter their password, something that should not happen, since the only way that Google asks for passwords is by synchronizing with the account.
