Image from store Netcraft Extension
Description from store The Netcraft Extension is a tool allowing easy lookup of information relating to the sites you visit and providing protection from phishing and malicious JavaScript. What's new in v1.15.0? • Added more protections against malicious JavaScript • Added protections against malware • Minor bugfixes Key Features: • Protection against phishing sites — The Netcraft anti-phishing community is effectively a giant neighbourhood watch scheme, empowering the most alert and most expert members to defend everyone within the community. As soon as the first recipients of a phishing mail report it, we can block it for all users of the extension providing an additional level of protection from Phishing. Netcraft processes reports of fraudulent URLs from a diverse variety of sources and proactively searches for new fraudulent sites. • Protection against malicious JavaScript — Prevent your credit card details from being stolen by shopping site skimmers or your computer's processing power being harvested by web miners. Netcraft has been detecting shopping site skimmers, web miners, and other malicious JavaScript since 2017. The extension blocks sites that we have found to be compromised with malicious JavaScript. Additionally, it detects JavaScript that we have identified as being malicious, blocks pages that use it from loading, and automatically reports them to Netcraft to protect the rest of the community. • Detailed site reports – simply click the Netcraft logo to access a wealth of information about the sites you visit, helping you to make informed choices about their safety. • Risk Ratings – we evaluate the characteristics of the site and compare these against those depicted by fraudulent sites. The result is a simple visual summary displayed on the site report. • Conveniently report suspected phishing & fraudulent sites – At the click of the button you can report suspected web forgeries to Netcraft, helping to protect the community. Netcraft operates an incentive scheme for Phishing site submissions, including iPads, backpacks, mugs, and more… https://news.netcraft.com/phishing-report-competition • PFS indicator – check if sites using SSL for encryption support Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS). PFS ensures that if the private key of the site is compromised – for example by a court order, social engineering, an attack against the site, or cryptanalysis – your historical encrypted traffic is still safe. • Heartbleed indicator – check if sites are still using an SSL certificate that was potentially compromised by Heartbleed. The extension uses data from Netcraft's SSL Survey to determine whether a site offered the heartbeat TLS Extension prior to the Heartbleed disclosure. If this is the case, the extension will also check to see if the site's SSL certificate has been replaced; if it has not, then the site is considered to be unsafe, as the certificate's private key could have been compromised. • Protection against cross site scripting (XSS) — The extension optionally traps XSS and other suspicious URLs which contain characters highly likely to deceive.

  • (2017-04-14) Mark Arambula: This extension is such a helpful tool in preventing phishing attempts when browsing to websites. Recently an article published by WordFence, the most popular security plugin used for WordPress sites notified the public of a severe vulnerability in Chrome exposing users to phishing exploitation's within the Chrome browser. This extension is helpful in cases like this in order to identify the real URL in the address bar. I highly recommend its usage. The link below is only for reference to a great example of how this extension works to protect Chrome till it is patched. https://www.wordfence.com/blog/2017/04/chrome-firefox-unicode-phishing

  • (2018-04-25, v:1.11.3) SLOWING DOWN browsing; settings NOT SAVING
    1) The extension DRASTICALLY slows down browsing, 2) Trying to solve the problem by disabling its filtering functionalities (Block phishing sites, Block XSS attacks, Warn about suspicious sites) and using the extension exclusively for quickly viewing SITE REPORTs - i. e. running it in a 'Standby mode' - does not work, since after browser relaunch all of the filtering is again reset to ON.

    All of a sudden this extension was mysteriously disabled in the latest Chromium. I have never had this problem before. I've re-enabled it and hopefully I won't have any further issues. I would suggest you investigate this however.
