Added logic to blacklist all punycode domains. This will help tackle phishing in a big way as we are seeing a lot of IDN homograph attack domains on places such as coinbase, poloniex, mycrypto, and myetherwallet. This means you won’t have to worry so much about checking the domain carefully for characters, i.e.: mycrypto.com or mycrypø̄.com)
This block is toggable, but by default it’s turned on.
Adjusted edit distance for myetherwallet.com from 7 to 5 to prevent a lot of false-positives.
EAL has now increased its efforts to quickly redirect its users away from phishing attacks by consuming 2 trusted 3rd party blacklists managed by; iosiro and segasec. The option to use these 3rd party blacklists is up to you, and you can toggle it on/off whenever you like, though it will be beneficial to keep it enabled (they’ve both fed multiple domains to me directly to blacklist before v1.13.)
🍾 Mega-thanks to https://quiknode.io for providing the RPC node that we make calls on! When you hover over an address, it’ll give you the ETH balance and the number of transactions going out. If the address is a contract address, it’ll also give a small label telling you it is.
EAL will now display an notice on an ENS name that has ZWC characters in them. This should help reduce bad actors attack vectors with trying to imitate trusted ENS domains (Although all clients to date are compliant and strip bad characters out, it may help with new clients not adhering to the spec well).
Due to the recent phishing campaigns going on, we have decided to start a domain blacklist, and
the extension will try to help you from being phished by removing the ability for you to interact with the blacklisted
domain by wiping the DOM and displaying a notice. This functionality is toggleable, but it’s best to keep it on.
If you find a domain that look suspicious and/or confirmed stealing private keys/being malicious, send
a pull request or open an issue.
This extension will search the DOM for any Ether address (a hexidecimal string) and add a link to it to your favourite
blockchain explorer. It will give you the option to add a highlight option so you can easily find addresses.
