Superfish has built technology that connects images to products and allows users to compare prices from different retailers. While the concept is interesting, their distribution methods are arguably black hat.

Superfish syndicates their product to other extensions, meaning that one user may have an extension called “Youtube Downloader” with Superfish Window Shopper, while another user may have an extension called “Download Keeper” with Superfish Window Shopper. Because of this, it can be difficult to determine the source of the infection.
