'Google Chrome 63 will include a new security feature that will detect
when third-party software is performing a Man-in-the-Middle (MitM)
attack that hijacks the user's Internet connection.... Most MitM
toolkits fail to correctly rewrite the user's encrypted connections,
causing SSL errors that Chrome will detect. The new Chrome 63 feature
is in the form of a new warning screen. This new error will appear
whenever Chrome detects a large number of SSL connection errors in a
short timespan, a sign that someone is trying -- and failing -- to
intercept the user's web traffic. This includes both malware and
legitimate applications, such as antivirus and firewall applications.
The new Chrome error won't show up for all antivirus and firewall
software, but only for those that do not rewrite SSL connections in a
proper way, resulting in SSL errors.
Chrome 63 is set for release on December 5, but users can already test
it by enabling it in the Google Chrome dev branch'
