EvilGnome Malware Spying Alert

EvilGnome: Malware Spying on Linux Desktop Users

If you are running a gnome3 based distro you may want to read this article. Apparently, a Russian malware attack is appearing in some gnome shell extensions.   Always take care and only install software from trusted sources like the official repositories.   One of the reason Windows is so malware prone, because so many ignorant users will install software from the the web without considering the security risk.  


Prevention and Response

We recommend to Linux users who want to check whether they are infected to check the “~/.cache/gnome-software/gnome-shell-extensions” directory for the “gnome-shell-ext” executable.
