Fake "Adobe Flash Player Update Required"

Recommended Posts

Continue to get a phony message that I need to update Adobe Flash Player, have run the full version of Malwarebytes but it fails to find this.

Running MacOS Mojave (10.14.1) on a MacBook Pro. Seems to be somehow connected to an online game Words With Friends. (Not an app installed on computer.)

Almost certainly not caused by anything on your computer. Most probably caused by an corrupted advertisement (so called malvertising) on that gaming site. Your only defense, if you can't just ignore it is to install an adblocker in the browser you are using. Malwarebytes has such extensions in beta testing for Chrome and Firefox, but nothing yet for Safari.
