Chrome 63 notifies you of Man-in-the-Middle issues

September 11, 2017 – 6:36 AM

Google plans to launch a new security feature in the upcoming Chrome 63 browser that notifies users about Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) issues.

MITM is best known as a method to attack user systems by intercepting and manipulating traffic. Many security programs with firewall and browsing components do use similar functionality to inspect encrypted traffic.

The security feature that will launch in Chrome 63 displays a notification to users if (legitimate) security software causes issues on the system because of its interference with encrypted SSL traffic.
