    1. Registering new services to the Injector If you've created a module using React, it's a good idea to afford other developers an API to enhance those components, forms, and state. To do that, simply register them with Injector.

    1. 6.2 Extension IDs Each extension has an extension ID that follows the browserext:// protocol. For example browserext://MyExtension_c1wakc4j0nefm/options.html browserext://dfcijpibodeoenkablikbkiobbdnkfki/options.html The algorithms that generate these IDs are different for each browser. To access these resources, do not hardcode the ID generated by a particular browser. Instead, use the runtime.getURL() method to convert a relative file name or path to the absolute name or path, which includes the extension ID.

      Vivaldi, as you know, I love your browser and use it primary and multiple times a day, despite it's quirks deviating from Chrome.

      Having said this, can we eliminate the generated file names for extensions, screenshots, and notes?

    1. So rather than waiting further we decided to instrument the existing web interface — not a terribly elegant or reliable solution but it works for now.

      Sigh, it looks like we'll need to do something similar for H in order to automate the Firefox extension build process unless APIs are ready soon.

    1. This section defines three signature algorithms based on the RSA encryption process described in Sections 8 and 9. The intended use of the signature algorithms is in signing X.509/PEM certificates and certificate-revocation lists, PKCS #6 extended certificates, and other objects employing digital signatures such as X.401 message tokens. The algorithms are not intended for use in constructing digital signatures in PKCS #7. The first signature algorithm (informally, "MD2 with RSA") combines the MD2 message-digest algorithm with RSA, the second (informally, "MD4 with RSA") combines the MD4 message-digest algorithm with RSA, and the third (informally, "MD5 with RSA") combines the MD5 message-digest algorithm with RSA.

      See http://security.stackexchange.com/questions/10706/encode-der-with-openssl for a high level overview of the signing process

    1. Accessing a Webpage
    2. In Share extensions (on both platforms) and Action extensions (iOS only), you can give users access to web content by asking Safari to run a JavaScript file and return the results to the extension.
    3. On both platforms, your custom JavaScript class can define a run() function that Safari invokes as soon as it loads the JavaScript file. In the run() function, Safari provides an argument named completionFunction, with which you can pass results to your app extension in the form of a key-value object. In iOS, you can also define a finalize() function that Safari invokes when your app extension calls completeRequestReturningItems:completion: at the end of its task. A finalize() function can use items your extension passes in completeRequestReturningItems:completion: to change the webpage as desired.
    4. Create a JavaScript file that includes a global object named ExtensionPreprocessingJS. Assign a new instance of your custom JavaScript class to this object.
    1. When we first set out to identify malicious extensionsour expectation was to find banking trojans and pass-word stealers that duplicated the strategies pioneered byZeus and SpyEye. In practice, the abusive extensionecosystem is drastically different from malicious bina-ries. Monetization hinges on direct or indirect relation-ships with syndicated search partners and ad injection af-filiate programs, some of which earn millions of dollarsfrom infected users [37]. Miscreants derive wealth fromtrafficanduser targetingrather than the computing re-sources or privileged access mediated via the browser. Itmay simply be that the authors of malicious binaries havelittle incentive (or external pressure) to change, leavingextensions to a distinct set of actors. This uncertainty isa strong motivation for exploring the extension ecosys-tem further.

      This is the section that identifies the motives and economics around malicious extensions
