Microsoft products detect chrome.exe as a PWS:Win32/Zbot Trojan RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi folks,

     

    It looks like both Windows Security Essentials and Microsoft Forefront are detecting Google Chrome as a Trojan. This appears to be a false positive. We’ve tested and the issue appears for both existing and new installs downloaded from Google. We’ve seen no response from Google yet, but you can monitor a support request here:
