My Google search results appear to be changed. I inspected source and can see JavaScript from jonysource.com and fastandprettysearch.com which I am suspicious about, as I'd have thought these would all be from Google?
The jonysource.com JavaScript seems to appear no matter what page is loaded

Hi Joe, I got hit with this yesterday as well and it appears to be new adware/malware. Check out this Kaspersky thread:


So far I can't get rid of it and the only way to stop it is with ScriptSafe or another script blocker. It's not just search results- jonysource tries to run on every page I go to.

It's some new Google Apps Launcher vulnerability. Removing that extension stops the requests to jonysource.

I started getting this today, removed Google Apps Launcher and it went away for about an hour, but it's happening again. I have verified that the extension did not return. 

I do NOT see jonysource or fastandprettysearch when inspecting the source code. Very strange and disconcerting.

It is not happening in Firefox for me, only Chrome. It's happening on all websites.

I am having the same issue. Removed the extension but the problem persists.

Disabled jonysource.com in pi-hole, disabled Apps Launcher in Chrome - search results are not hijacked... for now. Will keep an eye on it :-/

I've been having this problem and have tried all types of methods to fix the issue and none work. Hopefully, a solution from Google Chrome is addressed in this help area.

Malwarebytes, SpyBot and my anti-virus all said my computer was clean but I kept getting these alerts (and see the connection attempts in the firewall), so I did a full uninstall and reinstall of Chrome. The Apps Launcher extension came back when I signed in, but I removed immediately. So far the issue seems resolved.

Thanks everyone. I had to uninstall Chrome completely in the end, and that got rid of it (even when getting app launcher back). Unfortunately I lost a lot of tabs that I had kept open on purpose (but not hit for a while, so due to a possible bug in Chrome, did not show up in the history). This and the couple of hours I spent researching the malware and how to get rid of it, as the main pain I have suffered. Very little from Google, which is disappointing!

Same issue. I have removed and reinstalled, came back. Webroot, Malware bites and sophos all miss it
