Beware of sites that say you need the latest Flash player

One of the most common scams criminals use is to tell you to “click here to download the latest flash player” using the real flash logo and everything. Only get the flash player and updates from www.adobe.com – never a link on some other web site.  Stay safe!

    Wow Mike – what a tip! This is sort of scary. I know I’ve gotten pop-ups from time to time saying I need to get the latest version of the flash player. I must have been lucky so far that they weren’t scams – I’ll be much more vigialant in the future. I’m gong to Tweet this link right away.
