Update Google Chrome Web Browser Malicious Website

Google Chrome web browser users should look out for a malicious update web page. If you are taken to any web page which asks you to update Google Chrome, please do not click on any of the links on the page. Google Chrome automatically updates itself in the background, that is, without your intervention.

This is how the malicious Google Chrome Update web page looks:

The name of the malicious file is google_chrome_update.exe. Please note that the file name can change.

This malicious file will infect your computer with a Trojan, virus and other malwares which, can be used to steal your usernames, passwords, credit card information, other personal information and, use your computer to commit cybercrime.

Again, never download files from any web sites to update your Google Chrome web browser; Google Chrome will update itself automatically.
