Extension Security/Tracking Issue - Temp Mail

Not sure where to report this.

There is a security issue with this plugin!

When the plugin is enabled, if you visit a website, within 30 seconds, YandexBot tries to index the URL you just visited. It ONLY occurs when this plugin is enabled, and the page is 100% unpublished and hidden, so there’s absolutely no way YandexBot can know about it within 10 seconds. I have repeated this with several file names to confirm, and confirmed it is only with this plugin. I will have to uninstall this for now as this is a tracking issue.

(YandexBot’s IP address is first)

5.45.207.x - - [26/Aug/2022:06:35:26 -0500] “GET /SECRET-PAGE-UNPUBLISHED HTTP/2” 200 503 “-” “Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; YandexBot/3.0; +http://yandex.com/bots)” “hostname.hostname”

Thank you

It is not necessarily security problem but in my opinion privacy problem.
It is out of scope of brave browser, and only chrome web store has any control over it.

But, beforehand brave browser has blocked a particular extension from getting installed on brave even if you do it. I do not remember which extension it was, but it had sometype of security problem.

On other notes, I would recommend using Simplelogin, Anonaddy, Firefox Relay, Duck Email (just launched) etc
