According to the company's report, the extensions took advantage of the header HTTP Cache-Control as a covert path or channel to execute commands from a server controlled by the hackers.

By using this method, attackers could mask the real intentions of malicious extensions which captured search results to get clicks on certain links while the victim was browsing. In addition to this, the criminals also obtained additional information such as email address, information about the local machine and even the date of birth, browser version and IP address of the victims.

According to the Avast report, some of the most affected countries are Brazil, Ukraine, France and Spain. In second place are Argentina, Russia and the United States.
