All of a sudden, my Google search result pages showed some weird ads from the UK ads provider “adskeeper”, and after further investigation, it turned out to be this little extension I used long time ago called “Betternet Unlimited Free VPN Proxy“. Immediately disabled and uninstalled as this doesn’t sound like a “Betternet” for me!
I had a bad time with another chrome extension got hacked by someone who managed to replace its source code with his malicious version! I can’t believe how maintaining your chrome browser clean seems to be even much more harder now than before.
For a reliable VPN solution, I use Nyr’s script to install and maintain OpenVPN on any of my VPSs, so far so good with this method, also, PrivateInternetAccess seems to be another reliable alternative as well.
