I have had no problems running chrome and Trend Micro maximum security until today.
When I try to run chrome today I get a message
"Someone tried to exploit vulnerabilities in chrome.exe. Trend Micro maximum security stopped the attack and chrome.exe for you your safety. You do not need to do anything else so feel free to close this message."

Is this a genuine attack on my system? what can I do about it and how can I run chrome safely in future?
