New #Linux #malware has been discovered that masquerades as a #GNOME shell extension and spies on users.
@linuxjournal *laughs in KDE*
@henriquesga @linuxjournal mv fake_gnome_extension fake_plasmoid
Done, here's a KDE version.
@shiba @linuxjournal *cries in KDE*
@dnkl @linuxjournal check with looking glass
@nergal @linuxjournal it's not a real extension. It's only masquerading as one.
Unless you meant that *all* (real) extensions are malware... Something I can agree with 😂
@dnkl @linuxjournal I agree... Interesting thing done with extensions. Malware is usually interesting.
@dnkl @linuxjournal the extension in particular is c++?
