I have just received an update that required a system restart. Current version is 17.7.1634.

Trend Micro now protects again “Dangerous Notifications”. According to Trend Micro:

Trend Micro Security wants to check if the browser notifications you enabled on your web browsers are dangerous or safe.

Browser Notifications are messages that come from a website. It allows you to get timely updates from sites you frequently visit. It lets website owners send personalized messages to retain visitors. They are super powerful and really handy, but scammers have been exploiting the feature to promote unwanted ads and scam sites, and even send out malicious links containing malware.

If you accidentally allowed a suspicious website to push notifications on your browser, it may show scam notifications like fake alerts, messages from fake dating sites, or product advertisements.
