Turn off automatic downloads in Google Chrome
An option for your security is to disable automatic downloads through the application settings.
From the Chrome address
chrome: // settings
By simply enabling this setting, Chrome will ask you where to save the files each time before downloading from program browsing.
Although you add a level of protection to manipulating Chrome downloads, edited SCF files may come in different ways in systems targeting hackers.
One of the protection options that users and system administrators have is to close the ports used by SMB traffic through the firewall (firewall). Microsoft has a driver that you can use, and suggests blocking communication to and from the Internet on the SMB 137, 138, 139, and 445 ports.
Warning: Excluding these ports can also affect other Windows services such as fax service, print spooler, local area networking, or file and printer sharing.
