Created chromium tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1568801]
Affects: epel-7 [bug 1568800]

Comment 3 Tomas Hoger 2018-04-19 09:26:55 UTC
SmartScreen is a feature of the Microsoft Windows operating system / Microsoft Windows Defender, hence this flaw would not be relevant to non-Windows builds of Chrome / Chromium.
