New browser extension (8765) beta - loading websites in the background


Recommended Posts

I was reviewing our IPS logs and noticed that my computer was making connection attempts to all sorts of devices I wouldn't normally access (switches, printers, UPS management interfaces.) I looked at the processes generating the traffic (netstat -atbfn) and it was all coming from Chrome. The connection attempts were repeating every 45-60 seconds. After disabling the new browser extension beta the connection attempts stopped. It seems like the new plugin is repeatedly trying to access the URLs listed in any password entries. Is that the expected behavior?

Hi MikeC,


Thanks for the feedback, and we are trying to fix this at the moment during the beta - basically we were trying to retrieve the FavIcon for each site, but we've come up with a better method of doing this now.
