Chrome-Plugin turns Amazon into eBook-Pirate-Site

zoo

Ein neues Plugin greift sich eBook-Links aus der LibGen-Datenbank (die größte Suchmaschine für eBook-Warez) und fügt sie in einer eigenen Leiste in Amazons Shop ein. Funktioniert im Moment nur mit Amazon.com.

With a new Chrome extension pirates are entering Amazon, effectively transforming it into a pirate ‘store.’

When the LibGen extension is installed, it adds a new row on top of the Amazon product page of books that are also available through unauthorized sources. The plugin uses data from the Libgen.org search engine which lists over a million books. Below is a screenshot of an Amazon book page, with a new row on the top linking to pirated downloads of the same title.
