So last month a series of attacks from malware creators have panicked many users of Google Chrome web browser. The malware does just one thing, it lets you add an extension that makes it self appear like it is from Google.

But since you can actually opt not to install it, the malware creators devised  a plan to make it automatically install as an extension to Chrome.

Now, these same group of hackers have developed a trojan horse.

4.) Once detected, remove every instance or files with the trojan virus infection.
