I was using this Chrome Extension on Brave: Copy Links. Its Chrome Web Store page was here (currently leads to a 404 not found error page). I’ve just recently launched Chrome which also has this extension installed. It gave me a notification that this extension has been disabled and that it contains malware.
There is no similar warning in Brave. I even tried updating my Brave extensions. This seems like a bug.
How can this issue be reproduced?
(Not easy to reproduce due to the nature of the issue.)
- Install an extension from the Chrome Web Store
- Have the extension marked as malware by Google (and removed from the Chrome Web Store)
- Notice that Brave won’t disable or mark the extension as malware
Expected result: Brave should auto-disable the extension or at the least, mark it as malware.
