    Default New McAfee extension? Is it legit?

    Hi there. I'm new here, and new to chrome.

    There is a new extension in the chrome web store, called McAfee Secure Safe Browsing "Version 1.1". It says it was updated on October 29 2014. I haven't seen any discussion anywhere about this extension, and whether it is legitimate. The weird part is that when it says a site is "not certified", it gives "similar sites that may be similar". These sites are obvious advertisements for things that have nothing to do with the page. Almost all pages I have gone to were "not certified".

    Does anyone know anything about this extension? Is it a scam, or a rogue extension? Anyone with any info or advice would be very appreciated!

    Also, off topic, not sure where to post this: this is the first time I'm using the site; I just registered about 30 minutes ago. I tried to search the forum for "McAfee" to see if anyone already posted about this. But it won't let me search. It's giving me a message that I "don't have permission to access this page". Does anyone know what that may be about?
