There is one posting on this topic, but I don't understand the fix if any.  I have started to get what I know are fake Adobe Flash Update warnings in a popup.  The only way to close out the warning is to click on the tab's x in Chrome.  I certainly didn't'/don't click on Update.  I don't use Safari and haven't used Firefox enough recently to notice it there. I don't have Flash installed...hence, I know the warning is fake.Numerous MBAM Premium for Mac scans haven't identified any infections or PUPs.  Shouldn't it?  I am running 4.5.14 and Catalina 10.15.6.  No other antivirus.  Is an update planned for MBAM to fix this before damage is inadvertently done?

Thank you.

I would suggest installing Ublock Origin and Malwarebytes Browser Guard in all supported browsers..

Exile360...very clear instructions.  Thank you.  I went thru the Google Sync instruction. When I ran a scan before turning Sync back on, no infections were detected.  Good thing or should I have had something.  I also went thru the Notifications in Settings, but nothing jumped out at me.  It was enlightening, though, to find out all of this info was there.  Will see what happens now.  Thank you.  

PS Porthos suggested Browser Guard.  I'll look into that next

uBlock Origin hasn't been supported on Safari in awhile; just fyi.  You can still use it on Chrome on a Mac.

Wasn't aware of a browser guard available on the Mac version of MBAM.

No, that's OK that nothing was found.  Hopefully resetting Sync does the trick, but if not then proceed with the next steps and the Mac malware removal experts will help you out and get it cleaned up.
