How to check that you're using the real Adblock Plus Chrome extension

Fraudulent ad-blocking extension tricks 37000 Google Chrome users
AdBlock Plus, created by a developer calling themselves Adblock Plus, managed to make its way past Google's security checks and into the official Chrome Web Store, where it sat alongside the real program.
The extension in question is AdBlock Plus, and its fake version was downloaded by over 37,000 users.
Users could have spotted the fake extension based on the blob of unrelated keywords the fraudulent developer added to the extension's description.

Liverpool's Mane out for up to six weeks
The injury is especially badly timed for Klopp with Liverpool's bitter rivals Manchester United visiting Anfield on Saturday. Mané has scored three goals in four Premier League appearances.
Social media users noted that many of those who downloaded the tool gave it negative reviews that mentioned the advert-displaying tabs. Although it can be hard if not impossible to spot every one, it's clear that the company has to upgrade its verification process to further minimize the chances of malicious software making its way to the Chrome Web Store.
It isn't yet clear if the fake extension had malicious intentions, but Google's failure to spot it is extremely concerning regardless, both for users and developers. Also, for AdBlock Plus, this is not the first time a fake extension has tried to copy it, notes Neowin.
News broke recently that a fake version of the Adblock Plus browser extension had made its way into the Chrome Web store. After doing so, Google claimed that it saw a 75 percent drop in the amount of support requests for removing unwanted extensions - for Windows users, at least. Google has taken down the phony listing after SwiftOnSecurity tweeted about it and put the company on blast, but by then, it has already been up long enough to fool 37,000 people. Further, the executive said that filtering will be done considering what is user-friendly and what is not based on the standards set by the Coalition for Better Ads. However, this capability will come to Chrome somewhere in January next year.
