With around 40-50% of all browser users worldwide using Google Chrome, it makes sense for hackers to target Chrome. Hackers are becoming more and more savvy and executing their hacking techniques with more finesse. Their hacking techniques are looking more and more legitimate and this can spell disaster if you are not vigilant in your computer use.
Chrome users need to be on the lookout when browsing the web and visiting websites that are not secure or trusted. Lately, hackers have been using website exploits in Chrome to try and get you to download or update your 'language pack' that embeds malware into your computer system.
It is going to look something like this:
Unfortunately, the hackers make the premise sound and look so believable it is hard to spot that it is, in fact, a hack. Also, unfortunate, if you do end up falling for this hack your system will be compromised by viruses or malware that could potentially put your system and personal information at risk. It also seems that Chrome and other anti-virus software (premium or not) are not yet picking up on this virus/malware.
If you come across this particular hack close all dialogue boxes and navigate from the website immediately. Simply having the dialogue box show up on your computer prompting you to download or update is not enough for your computer to be infected. However, if you proceed with the prompts, download and execute the file then your computer will be infected.
The best thing you can do is be vigilant. New hacks, viruses, and malware are being released daily and it is almost impossible to keep up with them all. No matter how legitimate something looks, be critically and if you have the smallest sense that something might be amiss, then I strongly suggest you either 1. do your research before you proceed or 2. call a professional who can check the legitimacy of whatever you are about to do.
