Submission + - Bogus Bad Piggies Plugins Found on Google Chrome Web Store (

hypnosec writes: Bad Piggies, Rovio’s latest game, has been having a lot of success and scammers have been quick to cash in by introducing fake version of the game on the Chrome Web Store in the form of Chrome plugins. The bogus plugins of the game, which were available on the Chrome Web Store and quite a few still are, asked for permissions that a game would never really need. The permissions being asked for were quite significant like accessing a user’s data on all websites. Once installed the plugin would insert extra ads into some of the most popular websites on the web like Yahoo, MSN, eBay, MySpace, Disney among others.
