Google Chrome 63 will soon have a new security feature that will be able to detect when a third-party software executes a Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attack that takes over the user’s internet connection.

MitM attacks works by infiltrating a user’s computer or local network after the installation of an infected application where it then intercepts web traffic from the user.

Chrome 63 will be able to detect SSL errors that happens when MitM toolkits incorrectly rewrites encrypted connections, from encrypted HTTPS traffic.

The Chromium Development Calendar anticipates that if no delay or problems are encountered, Google will launch Chrome 63 by December 5.
