I’m very careful with the things I install on my computer, and the extensions I used in Google Chrome, my browser of choice.
asgds_modal ID. That’s pretty bad. ?
If you use that extension, you’ll want to deactivate it right now!
I’m now back to using the Network tab of the Developer tools for that kind of work, unless some of you know of a good extension I could use?

Ha! Thanks – just found this searching for “asgds_modal” after it popped up on apple.com. Live HTTP Headers was the culprit.
Ran into the same issue today. Uninstall immediately!
Thanks for the tip! Was frustrating to see those modals.
Thank you! I couldn’t figure out where that modal was coming from!
Do you know if the Firefox extension of the same name is similarly infected?
That’s a very good question. It doesn’t seem to be from the same author, so I’d assume you’re okay.
Thanks for tip! Also found this by googling “asgds_modal” after a few popups today
They actually are removing the extension from browsers that have it installed. As of at least right now, Chrome will automatically permanently disable the extension and pop up a malware warning. So, good news. Also, bummer, that used to be such a good tool.
