Malware Disguising Itself As An Update
An ArsTechnica article posted today is talking about a rash of websites that have been compromised, and are now delivering phony web browser updates to site visitors.
What’s important for our clients to understand is that all major web browsers have a control method for updates. Internet Explorer and Edge are updated through Windows Update. Chrome and Firefox both phone home and download updates from their trusted sources. There is never a legitimate reason for a website to distribute an update to your web browser.
As always, keep your anti-virus software up-to-date, and if you run into any problems, Reinforcements are just a phone call away.
