The Chrome extension Browse Secure may sound like it wants to do nothing but make your browser more secure. 

And yet this extension is collecting contact data from Facebook and LinkedIn once the user is logged in, Germany's Federal Office for Information Security has discovered.

The extension has already been removed from the Chrome Web Store, but anyone who thinks they might still have it installed should make sure to uninstall it.
