Description of the issue:
I recently found out that I had a crypto wallet-stealer extension installed by the name of “Google Sheets”. I located its path (C:\Users\shaan\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\User Data\Default\Extension\blikpfdmdlibmreennqqojdicffiokco\4.1.4._0)
When I delete the extension folder, every time I run Brave, I get the following pop-up:
How can this issue be reproduced?
By Opening Brave
Brave opening without any pop-up like above
Version 1.42.88 Chromium: 104.0.5112.81 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Is there a brave extension loader file that is forcefully trying to load that doesn’t exist? Or is it some outsider application? I’ve scanned my computer with Malwarebytes and adwcleaner and it came out with 0 detections.
I’d like to know how to provide logs so maybe that’ll help to identify it better. I just don’t want to reset the browser. It takes too much time to restore everything
