Beware of "Your Version of Flash Player for Chrome is Outdated" Malicious Download

The Chrome Flash Player update page below is a fake and is malicious. If you are asked to download, upgrade, or install the Adobe Flash Player on your computer while browsing the internet, please do not install it from the website that you are browsing. There are malicious websites or advertisements that will attempt to trick you into downloading and installing a malicious program disguised as the Adobe Flash Player.

Please continue reading below.

If the Adobe Flash Player web browser plug-in is not installed on your computer or needs updating, only download it from the following website: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

If you have downloaded and installed the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player from the above website and you are still being asked to install it, the website that you are on is either malicious or there is a malicious advertisement displaying the fake Adobe Flash Player link.

Because most persons are always anxious to watch a video online, they will quickly click on a link and install any software in order to do so. Doing so is very dangerous because you can download a malicious program, which will spy on you, steal your personal information, credit card information, or online accounts username and password.

You are using Chrome to navigate and your Flash Player add-on is outdated.

When we scan the malicious file, we found the following the threats:
