So previously I asked a question about what type of private data can addons extract from my browser :
and it turns out if they simply have a permission to read content of the page I'm visiting which most of them have, then they can simply send it to their server and basically record my history this way (since addons dont need permission to access internet and send data)
now my question is, do popular Internet security programs like Kaspersky and their addons detect this type of malicious activity and stop it?
if not, what should I do? because even if an addon is well known I cant still be sure that its not doing something malicious after their latest update, and I don't have the knowledge to check if they are malicious or not. and I cant simply stop using addons since I need most of them! (but I wont install newly made add-ons with no reputation)
so what is the solution here? how can I make sure that no malicious activity is taking place by firefox/chrome addons, is there any good Internet-security/Anti-Virus/addon that does that?
also do chrome and firefox check addons to make sure they are not malicious before putting them in their websites or not? if so, then how likely is it that they miss a malicious addon?
