In addition to checking a list of known bad files, Chrome also does checks on executable files (like “.exe” and “.msi” files). If the executable doesn’t match a white list, Chrome checks with Google for more information, such as whether the website you’re accessing hosts a high number of malicious downloads.”, According to Noé Lutz, Software Engineer and Malware Vigilante.
