Google to include warnings on malicious downloads in ChromeGoogle’s heart goes out to all of its Chrome browser users who have no clue on what malware is all about – announcing to the world that they want to incorporate warnings concerning malicious downloads in their very own Chrome browser, beefing up initial efforts that include a “Safe Browsing” mode. This is because there are still tons of harmful content going around the Internet that a user who is not too savvy might jsut get caught off guard, and have one’s computer compromised. A new update for the Chrome browser will see it seek out downloads which rely on social engineering to entice users to download and run malicious content, displaying a warning before one actually tries to make a download of a suspected malicious executable file. Said warning will pop up in a window, read as “This file appears to be malicious. Are you sure you want to continue?” while giving you the option to Discard or Save. One fantastic way to make sure no malicious files end up on your computer – make sure your PC’s software is updated all the time, and never, ever head to sites that carry porn, illegal downloads or software cracks.
