    Virus pretending as flash update

    While I was browsing randomly this morning I hit a page saying that my flash-player was outdated and invited me to download an update.

    I was laughing, well flash is Linux is always outdated and we get security updates through the package manager (except for Chrome, which you don't download flash updates on the web either) I knew immediately that it was a scam.

    "Flash HD" ads appears to just be scams.

    I was browsing the web a few days ago and a popup told me "Your "Windows Media Player" needs updating"
