Opera extension has virus/malware

  • I'm not sure the proper channel to alert about this, but I just added an extension called 'Flash Video Downloader (FVD)' to be able to save flash videos. Along with it came a virus/malware that tracks any shopping I do as well as cluttering my screen with ads.

    Is there a way to mark the extension from your download site to warn others until they can route out whatever this virus thing is. As it is now, it's an unsafe extension.

  • I see you already reported it as an issue on the FVD extension's download page, nothing else I could do from here. Being the weekend we may not have anyone official look at this page soon.

  • if you are having issues with fvd you can bet it's one of the saved speeddials. find it and remove it. i went through this a few weeks back. i'm using fvd in both opera and chrome and all extensions including fvd speeddial are up to date and working in both browsers just fine.

  • There are recurring comments of this exact issue on the Issues tab of the extension page, so I would have to wonder...
