It is not a serious infection itself and it is not aimed at damaging your computer. Instead, its purpose is rather informative. It is designed to show computer users that there are some security issues with the extensions that are applicable to the Google Chrome browser. As you have probably already understood, this add-on only appears on those computers which have Google Chrome installed. Even though this application is not harmful itself, it is classified as a potentially unwanted program. As it does not do anything good to your system, we recommend that you remove Cm Addon from your browser.

Cm Add-on can be installed onto your computer from the Chrome Web store. Once it gets onto your computer it starts showing 2 pop-ups with different messages. The first message which appears is “Send me your current cookies for the domain!”, whereas the second one provides the user with some information about the cookies. First of all, it states that Google usually implements an extension interface which includes no security model; secondly, it states that it is not difficult to extract personal and other information from the cookies. The publisher also claims that there is a possibility that the history of the websites that you visited might be accessed by other parties. Author is also going to develop an extension that would let read email of different computer users throughout the world and send them to any server.
