Hi,

Thanks for reporting the phishing attack.If you look on the internet for FlashPlayer.hta, you will find a few sites that claim to have fixes to remove this from your system.You can perform an internet search and find the same results.

A few things that you can do:

  • Task Manager: look for FlashPlayer.hta process, if it's present terminate it.
    • You may need to select to view processes for all users
  • Control Panel > List of installed programs: check to see if there's an entry for FlashPlayer.hta or other suspiciously named software that you don't recall install installing (e.g. some search toolbar, etc).
  • Browser plugins: same as above, look for a FlashPlayer.hta or other suspiciously named plugins that you don't recall installing

Also, we recommend you to download Flash Player from Adobe's official website: Adobe Flash Player Install for all versions . Also note that all updates from Adobe are from get3.adobe.com.

Thanks!
