Banking Trojan Hidden in Fake Google Chrome Updates


Updated on Fri Jan 11, 2013

Consumers who use the Google Chrome as their web-browsing application should be cautious of fake updates that actually house a banking trojan.

The file attempts to access your password database and may even steal your banking credentials. Luckily, consumers can easily detect this malware because Google Chrome will actually flag the download — just make sure not to ignore the warning.
