Google Adds ESET Malware Detection to Chrome

That's why on Chrome for Windows, the Chrome Cleanup feature alerts people when it detects unwanted software and offers a quick way to remove the software and return Chrome to its default settings.

Google is now clamping down on Chrome extensions that change user settings, such as the default search engine.

The second new Chrome security feature is a well-known tool named Chrome Cleanup Tool, previously offered as a standalone app. The revamped tool is now simpler to use: it automatically removes harmful software with the press of a button, and is more powerful, thanks to a partnership with IT security firm ESET. Users will then be to either disable or accept the extension's changes. Or at the very least, cut down on frantic tech support calls from less tech-savvy family members and friends wondering why Google search isn't working anymore. Chrome Cleanup works by notifying users when it detects that a harmful software is installed on the user's PC.

ME gets extension on federal REAL ID requirements
The agency already has on file documents for more than one million of the three million regular license holders in the state. Department of Homeland Security has issued an additional one-year waiver as ME works to comply with the federal REAL ID law.

In case users accidentally dismiss the notification popups or an extension has hijacked multiple settings at once, Google has also added the ability to access one settings section page and reset the entire user profile with one click. In the past month, this feature has helped millions of people recover from unwanted settings.

How does Chrome detect something wrong?

Back in January, Google Chrome received an update that brought the first "Not secure" badge to the right-hand side of the URL in the address bar. It should allow more unwanted software to be detected while also allowing for a more thorough clean up even for the most malicious Chrome-targeted attacks.

"Speed of the scan and minimal performance impact is crucial hence only the most necessary parts of the scanning engine are included, resulting in a pretty tiny product".

From functionality perspective, it lacks preventive dynamic on-access scanning, i.e.it doesn't monitor the system all the time. "Note this new sandboxed engine is not a general-purpose antivirus-it only removes software that doesn't comply with our unwanted software policy", the company explains.
