Perhaps this didn't originate from Adobe, but in looking something up via Google today, I was given an Adobe Flash Update connection. Not only did this update Adobe flash, but it dump-trucked all sorts of additional software like MacClean and Booking.com apps on my Mac and changed several settings such as default browser and dock settings. A Malware scanner found other search software called 'Aurora' that was loaded with it.
I have been trying to find and remove all the CRAP that came with updating Flash and this has made me very angry today.
Lesson learned I will NEVER allow and Adobe Flash update to auto upload again.
Fool me once, SHAME ON YOU......

You were scammed. Be careful, and NEVER accept a Flash update. Once you've cleaned up your computer, set Flash to auto update instead. I recommend wiping the system and starting again, you'll never know what subtle stuff it installed along with the obvious junk.
