Google Chrome users should be on the look-out for a terrifying new scam.A malicious application that disguises itself to look like the Chrome web browser has been discovered.

The fraudulent app attempts to trick users into willingly entering their payment card information. These details are then collected and mailed to an AOL email address, security blog BleepingComputer has reported.

Dubbed Betaling, the sly new malware appears on the desktop of your computer with the standard Chrome icon – making it almost indistinguishable from the real application.

The Betaling software also uses a similar user interface to Google’s hugely-successful web browser.

When a victim loads a browser window in Betaling, they will be confronted with the same-style URL navigation bar as Chrome – and even the same HTTPS lock icon.
