Executives are allowed to ignore anything they want because they deserve it.

"42 per cent of malicious extensions use the Web Request API."

Of course they do, it is a common function. I bet they all use another common API just as much if not more.

100% of them use chrome and the google store.

Most of the malware use google adverts, so how about we restrict the functionality of adverts ?

Anyone else fancy slapping some random Venn diagrams on this ?
