Microsoft falsely labels Chrome as malware

“Wow, that’s certainly one way to win the browser war,” said Andrew Storms, director of security operations at nCircle Security, over on Network World.

Google has released a new version of Chrome after Microsofts antivirus software flagged the browser as malware and removed it from about 3,000 peoples computers on Friday.

Microsoft apologized for the problem and updated its virus definition file to correct the false-positive problem, according to a post from Ryan Naraine at ZDNet.

“…perhaps Microsoft should have included Google, not just its customers, in its apology”.
