Default Beware of 'Updater' software message

I just got a message splashed across my screen from a Google 'look alike' that said I need to update Chrome and 'click here' for that to happen.

My Chrome's just fine. I double checked - it is up-to-date. It's probably not specific to this website but it is very misleading.

I happened to notice that it had a less obtrusive print message saying that it looks for products that need updating on my machine and the next step would be accepting their terms.

Just recognize this for the phishing termite that it is. I have plenty of anti-virus protection and this still sneaked in!

That creepy 'Updater' message still pops up when I'm in Fitday. It says that I need to update Google - and it wants me to install the product, which it says checks on all my software to make sure it's up to date.

Definitely this is not Google producing this 'updater.' My Chrome browser is up to date.
