The questions I have relate to automatic downloads in Google Chrome, under Settings > Advanced > Content settings.
For starters, are there any security risks associated with allowing sites to ask when they want to download multiple files automatically to my computer after I decide to download the first file?
Can anyone here give an example of a legitimate website that does this?
This seems like something that could easily be abused by nefarious actors.
Is it really that hard to ask people to download multiple files separately, instead of allowing sites to download multiple files automatically after the first download, when downloading a program/file on the internet?
It seems like the trade off between a little bit of convenience gained and security doesn't seem worth it.
