Experts are warning Google Chrome users that a pop-up window can end up infecting their computers. 

If you get a pop-up window  asking to download an update while using Google Chrome, beware, it's a scam!

The malware targets Windows users. Mac users are safe for now. 

The pop-up alert tells you "The 'HoeflerText' font wasn't found." If you click on the link, malware will download onto your computer. 

Cyber experts say Google Chrome will never ask you to download a font.
