  1. It person and ran across this today on one of my 50 users machines. Never seen it seen it before? I got a notification from AVNotification on our Network. It appears that Google Chrome allows Infostealer.banco.c to install, without your knowledge, via Google Tool Bar, manual DL, or Google updater. It is a Trogan horse program that logs keystrokes and steals information entered into bank sites. It also steals cached passwords from Outlook. Easy to remove with norton, if you have it. Just a few steps to go thru to do it correct. Symantec and have good info. Hundreds out if you search it.

    If you want revoval instructions, just email me. If it is of interest i will just post it.


    PS: Forgot that it can be located in C:\Documents and Settings\user name, whatever that may be\local Settings\Application Data\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache\f_000b8c. The cache extention may vary depending on computer name. .

    Google Chrome is not particularly security savvy, and I dislike it for a number of other reasons too, but that's for another time. If you're security conscious, FX would be the one to go for.

    Do no Harm?

    I've always liked Google but every search you make, every web site you visit if you use Chrome is archived in Google servers. If you use Gmail they archive everything. Kind of makes me wonder.

    Just kind of went away

    As far as I know everything is still archived, the news about it just kind of died out.
