Trojan.BPlug.1074

....is the name of a recently discovered trojan that hides in Chrome extensions and spams your Facebook friends with links to malicious websites.

seen recently, as part of a Google Chrome extension's JavaScript files. when users install the Chrome extension in their browser, it waits for the victim to visit Facebook.

BPlug spams your friends via user groups and Facebook mentions

BPlug will hide some of the user's top-right menu options, preventing them from accessing the logout menu, but it will also create a randomly named group in the user's name. see here for more:
