Google virus

I have infected my PC with a virus via Google Chrome extension taken from chrome.google.com domain. This is a real virus, there are many reports on it on extension’s bug page, and these are ignored by Google, virus gets spread from this domain, and one report say that it has a KEYLOGGER within. It isn’t recognized by my extrafresh-updated Windows Defender on extrafresh-updated Windows 8.1. It has affected my Linux OSes since it uses Chromium’s JavaScript. What is most amazing — it has penetrated into my hardware SoHo router and injected a viral hosttable into it! Redirecting popular websites like Google and Wikipedia to virus gateways trying to infect me even more. Infected router shows me virus websites on my Android telephone when connected to Wi-Fi. So, at the time, I am forced to hunt it and postpone my normal activities since I need to have a healthy PC to do what I need. I post research results and screenshots here: https://www.facebook.com/ssrublev/posts/780199955325517
