Got hit with a fake Flash Player update
Was in one of the threads on the college page when I got an alert to install an update for the Flash Player. The screen kind of faded gray on the sides and the adobe alert was right in the middle of the thread/page. Immediately tried to get me to save an exe to install flash.
Was running Microsoft Security Essentials and it caught it right away, here are the details from their stie:
It likely came from something via your ad network but wanted to give the heads up. I canceled the download, went to adobe's site and verified that I was on the latest version and did not need an update.
I had multiple tabs open but I was in the TWT page and that alert only showed on the tab for the forums.
