    Infected by chrome-updates.win phishing site


    Hi,

    My computer has been infected by "https://chrome-updates.win/s.html" site. It can be caused a program which is not safe for my computer I installed. When I opened Chrome or a new tab, it directs me to this address. At first, that page opened with nothing, just white page and after I had some inappropriate ads on my internet sites even on Chrome new tab favorite page. I think when that site opened, ads became active. Then I scanned my computer with Kaspersky, Zemana and Adwcleaner and I didn't see any ad site, but it directs me that site again. Also there is difference now, because I have a warning text in the site (I have screenshot), I think this is some of protection. But I'm troubled because of opening that direct site again. I think it is fake Chrome update virus. Kaspersky and Zemana scans were clean but Adwcleaner found some things and I deleted them and took screenshots, I can send them. Even I deleted that infected stuff, I have that problem again. How can I delete that thing? Sorry for my bad English, if you didn't understand, I can take care more.

    Thanks for your helps.

    Touch VPN was causing the issue for me, though I've heard it can come from any VPN browser extension.

    Thank you so much for mentioning the Touch VPN. I was having the exact same redirect issue and was panicked that it would take me all night to scan and solve. I removed the Touch VPN extension from Chrome and the issue was INSTANTLY solved. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

    Touch VPN and Betternet VPN is currently known to cause this. If you have either of them remove it.

    I maintain a list of compromised extensions, so if you find any active ones in your browser then remove it to get rid of adware -

    A little more on this specific issue

    Good thing is that Cloudflare itself is blocking the URL since it was known to send phishing. Still it is recommended that you remove the extension until it is fixed by the developers.

    Report the extension on the Chrome webstore as well by selecting "Report abuse" when removing the extension off your browser.

    Wow guys! Nice. Had the same issue. Removed the VPN, instantly solved.

    Funny thing is that I got the VPN plugin for like a week or 2 and suddenly after that I got all the ads

    Oh! Eventually we understood why we had this problem, because of VPNs. If you have ANY VPN EXTENSION, delete ALL OF THEM and you will suffer from that stuff. Thanks for your helps. :)

    Made an account on this site just so I could reply on here letting you guys know Betternet VPN is 100% causing this. I can't speak on the other VPNs but after reading this thread I removed Betternet from chrome and the ads and the chromeupdates.win tab is no longer coming up.

    I guess this is just a recent thing considering it just started happening to me and this thread was made a few hours ago?

    Yes, it just started happening around 12 hours ago. And a lot of VPN extensions have been affected. Recently on Chrome webstore many big extensions are being targeted by attackers and were compromised. Now the attackers have come with something new, targetting VPN extensions.
