Recently Chrome started to update installed extensions automatically through the core updates.

It's funny that Chrome removes decent extensions that doesn't comply with their new terms and at the same time Chrome allows developers/hackers to attach a malicious implementation on their extension that violates users privacy and steals their identity and information through auto updates without noticing the users.

Well, so how can you stop/workaround this funny feature? Is it even possible?
