  1. I am not exactly sure where to put this since it could be a legitimate infection or a false positive. Microsoft security essentials active protection has been flagging chromeupdate.crx as a variant of the Medfos.B trojan. When I scan that file with SE, MalwareBytes, and ESET, nothing comes up, only in SE active protection. I have done a full system scan using all three AV's listed above, nothing. I have since uninstalled Microsoft SE and installed a trial of Nod32. Nod32 active protection does not flag this file as an issue, nor does a system scan come up with anything. Here is a list of suspcious files: C:\Users\Chris\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\22.0.1229.79\Extensions\chromeupdate.crx *\cdjbnddbclciabnckgeahmneohjlahdm.json C:\Users\Chris\AppData\Local\chromeupdate.crx The .json file was never flagged, but its registry key points to chromeupdate.crx None of these files are on my other computers that have Chrome installed. Uninstalling and reinstalling Google Chrome does not change anything. No other symptoms of an infection other than the flagged file. Lastly, in the Google Chrome browser extensions list there is an extension that is called GoogleChromeUpdater that I am 99% certain is not legitimate. This last bit is what convinced me that this is not a false positive, but in fact an infection that is evading major AV programs. Attached is a screen shot of the Google Chrome Extensions. Any help is apprectiated. Thank you.
