By searching for a file on the network, you have certainly never been duped by a fake download button that instead of starting a download, redirected to a page. So Google has introduced a Chrome browser that will warn you of these types of sites.

The Internet is a real jungle in which predators lurk on every single mistake that can result in the infestation of our ad-serving computer, or other type of threat.

From the point of view of intenna, the most annoying problem is the fake download buttons. When we search for a new movie player or another file, we often get into buttons that instead of downloading, redirect us to another page.

Google has decided to take steps to eliminate the problem and announce that Chrome in safe mode will now flag websites that have fake download buttons, fake updates, or fake malware ads.

The change is part of Google’s new social engineering policy, which seeks to identify all forms of its use on web sites, such as fake login screens on websites pretending to be bank accounts, or counterfeit pages for updates. Attempting to enter such a site will result in a move to a warning page.
