This nasty malware is infecting all web browsers – what to do now

A gang of criminals is infecting Chrome, Firefox, Edge and other browsers with malware that hijacks search results with ads and sometimes even steals user passwords and other login credentials, Microsoft said yesterday (December 10). in a blog post.

The malware strain, which Microsoft calls Adrozek, infects Windows machines through “unauthorized downloads” that attempt to bypass browser defenses as soon as a browser loads one of more than 2 million malicious web pages.
