Fake Flash Player Update Infects Macs with Scareware

I strongly recommend that you AVOID doing any updates to Flash Player, UNLESS…  you do it this way:

Pull down the Apple menu at the upper left corner of your screen

Go to System Preferences

Choose Flash Player

Click on Updates

Click on Check Now.

You can trust these steps.  Don’t do it any other way!

Thank you, Tony. is there any way to know if we had unknowingly installed the fake one — other than receiving the threats (which I haven’t seen)?
It’s not so much “fake”, as much as “accompanied” by nasty things that were added on.  If you DON’T get web-pages that you never wanted, or ads everywhere, you’re fine.
