Google Chrome setup unknown to VirusTotal
« on: January 29, 2018, 12:27:03 PM »
Hi,
I use patchmypc and I experience regularly that the chrome updates do not appear on virustotal, which is usually a clear malware indicator. E.g. the latest version (XX.119) from PatchMyPC has SHA1 2930041fb94bb5b48dc83840b70972261909d222 - you do not find it on the web. Strange thing. Nevertheless, it is signed. This happens only with Chrome setup files on PatchMyPc. If I download the setup directly from Google, it has a different hash and I can find it on VT, too. Any explanations?

Thanks
Od

ps: you can find the setup on VT now because I just uploaded it. But I was the first one (check first submission date and compare it to release date: 5 days difference. Completely strange for such a mass file like chrome setup...)

Can I publish it to people who need it?
