Summary0001705: DANGEROUS AD PARTNERS!
Description*SERIOUS DANGER WARNING*
First thing that needs to be addressed is this extension's AD placement. Some *EXTREMELY* unsafe, and shady. I clicked and it took me to a website that tried to convince users that their computer has been infected, and to call a number to fix the problem. It takes people to a page that tries to reproduce Microsoft's page. It also goes fullscreen and simulates a browser tab at the top of the page to try to get you to click on it. It even plays an AUDIO, text to speech, that literally tells you your computer is infected, and if you don't call the number your computer will be shut down to protect their networks.
If it goes FULL SCREEN, use F11 and/or ESC to exit from full screen and just close the tab.

This is legit danger people.
DO NOT CLICK ON THIS LINK BELOW UNLESS YOU'RE VERY SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING!!
The AD went through a couple redirects and landed me here: http://critical-system-failure1503.73ht77162131.com-k6-xc3wi24ar.space/ Open in new tab

Whatever this extension may be, or however good it is, I'll never know because I'll never trust it when it's partnering with extremely shady AD partners, and putting people at serious risk!
Steps To ReproduceClick on AD banner enough and it will cycle through to this.
