Why would anyone with half a clue give someone else their secret key? I do t understand how people get scammed. Sorry I didn't read the article, I just dont get how someone can sign a TX without the secret... cold wallet anybody 🤪

People are socialized to enter information on setup of a new application like that.  The majority of novice computer users don't think twice about it.  If that thing was on the chrome web store I think google bares some responsibility towards allowing an extension like that on their app store.  Imagine allowing an attacker to create a fake "bank of America" app on the chrome webstore.  It'd be almost the same thing.

I could only find the Google Chrome Web Store Developer Agreement, but I would assume that particular user agreement would have similar if not a broader limitation of liability language within in it, to include, among other things, arbitration.

Why don't people use a clean Linux or Windows machine when doing anything financial or has confidential information on it? I have a laptop with Linux Mint I use for finances and another one for not-so-important-things like looking at cat videos, shopping on eBay or Amazon and viewing Pornhub videos.
