Safari Extensions — Be careful with your Safari Extensions, and turn off auto-updating

Very good point via the Safari Extensions blog – we all need to turn off auto-updating to prevent some nefarious extension creator from updating the extension without you knowing and start scraping your surfing habits.

Surprised Apple didn’t take this into account and because you can install extensions from anywhere, (there’s no AppStore approval process), care needs to be taken.
