Pretending that Steve Bannon is really the President was funny when Saturday Night Live did it on their opening bit. Then today, Business Insider wrote about a Google Chrome extension that replaces every mention of “Trump” with “Steve Bannon” on all web pages. Funny? Not from a Defensive Computing perspective.
Any extension that can change a specific word on every web page is inherently dangerous. Almost by definition, such an extension is spyware.
