Isn't the title of the article is somewhat misleading? Does it infect via chrome only?
Yes. It's designed to infect others via Chrome.
Extremely basic. Malicious extension for Chrome, autoit scripts to change browser shortcuts for Chrome/IE to load Chrome with the malicious extension. Malicious extension tags friends with a message that links to googledocs, and blocks the browser from accessing common AV/AM sites.
Can't really imagine anyone here falling for this, and NormanF has the simplest solution to stop family from getting infected.
This is silly.
It's made to sound like some high-end Chrome exploit.
It uses google docs "https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download" to push a direct link. This is a straight browser agnostic download with prompts NOT a drive-by.
Pure social engineering. Lame.
Separate names with a comma.
