It will be sorted out Chris this is actually important. For now search chrome at google and update by the installer downloaded.

I can't update Google Chrome as a result

This happened to me too (today, July 5, 16:40). It is the Chrome Updater.

Should have been addressed now. I am not sure what that conviction was but it's white listed now.

Al,

 

If you were Norton or McAfee or Avast

 

I would have screamed at you and this news would have made into most websites because Google Chrome is a popular product and finding a lot of false positives with any popular product will just tarnish your image.

 

:P

What can I say? FP's are a reality in this business. I wish it were otherwise but frankly if you want to protect people with generic detections you're going to make some mistakes along the way. Frankly I would rather apologize for a something I mis-detected than a real threat we missed which resulted in an infection and a subsequent identity theft.

I don't think this is just an immunet issue. I was trialing BluePoint Security a while back and it always reported that the chrome updater was malicious. They had to whitelist it as well.
