A number of apps have been reported to be vulnerable in the recent wave of Google Chrome malware attacks, according to research from researchers at the UK’s cybersecurity firm Rapid7.
The apps include Treemap, Treemask, and the popular Google Search app.
Treemaps, a search app for Windows, Android, and Mac, and Google Search for Windows are the two most popular Chrome apps.
Treemoaps is also used in the Google Play store, and there are reports of the app being compromised in some regions.
“The majority of the apps are in use and have a very high probability of being affected,” Rapid7’s research chief, Matt Jones, told NBC News.
“There is a real high risk of exposure.”
Treemasks app uses a “reverse download” feature that lets malware authors download a malicious version of a website’s app from the browser and then download the malware to the device.
That malicious version is then sent to the victim, where it is updated with malicious code and sent to other users.
Google Search, the third most popular search app on Windows, is also vulnerable to this attack, according the Rapid7 report.
Researchers at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill found that malware used to compromise Google Search could also be used to exploit the vulnerable apps in the attack, and they believe they have identified the source of the attacks.
The researchers believe that the malware was likely being used to infect more apps than the Treemapping malware could potentially infect.
“Google Search for Android is a very well known example of this kind of exploitation.
Other apps are vulnerable to the same attack, but the threat actors could be using the same technique,” Jones said.
“In all cases, this attack relies on the same ransomware that has been used to deliver a large number of phishing attacks across Europe and the United States, which in many cases involves sending emails to victims that prompt them to download the application. “
In some cases victims have actually received the ransomware, but have not yet received the app.” “

Rapid7 researchers say the attack is similar to a ransomware attack in 2015, but in the past five years they have found many other attacks where the malware targets a variety of sites, including the webmail accounts of schools, healthcare providers, and other government organizations.
“This attack is unique in that it targets only the Treemoask application, which has a lot of similarities to Treemapped,” Jones told NBC.
Rapid7 also said that Treemasses malware has been discovered in other apps, including Gmail and the Yahoo Messenger app. “
As the number of ransomware attacks continues to grow, we are seeing more and more instances where a large percentage of targeted websites are compromised in this attack,” he said.
Rapid7 also said that Treemasses malware has been discovered in other apps, including Gmail and the Yahoo Messenger app.
“While the majority of Treemass attacks are not directly related to the Chrome browser, the developers of Treemoasses were responsible for the most prevalent Chrome attack, with more than 50% of Treemaaps attacks occurring in the Chrome environment,” the researchers wrote in a blog post.
“Some of the most common Treemashers we’ve found are in the Gmail browser, Yahoo Messenger, and a few other popular webmail apps, such as the Yahoo Weather app, as well as in the Yandex app.”
Jones told BuzzFeed News that his team will be investigating whether Treemand has a similar attack strategy to the ones in 2015 and 2016, or if the attack might be different in a way that would be easier to exploit.
Rapidseven researchers say they have discovered that the malicious code used in some of the Treemeashers attacks is not necessarily a new ransomware, and that they believe there is an older version of the malware that is still in use.
The developers of the ransomware were not immediately available for comment.
The company is also currently working with researchers from Google and Apple to help identify the specific versions of the malicious software used in this latest attack.
The attackers have used similar methods in the previous attack against Chrome, which researchers have identified as an update to a different version of Treemeass, but this is the first time they have targeted Chrome directly.
The latest attack is reportedly affecting about 1.5 million computers.
“When we saw a Chrome update in February 2016, it was a fairly standard update, but a new update was made a few months later, and this is what we think is causing the latest attack,” Jones explained.
“These new updates may have a different payload, but they are all the same
