I acknowledged an update for Adobe Flash Player on my computer via Microsoft Edge. Then, I noticed the URL, which was: ree7stweeria.org (see screenshot below). Should I be concerned? NOTE1: Flash Player was NOT on my computer previous to this and I have verified that it still is not installed (Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features). NOTE2: No threats found by Norton Security Quick Scan.

Thank you for reporting. That's definitely a fake website, and FlashPlayer.hta is definitely a fake file. I've forwarded to our fraud team for follow-up. In the future, feel free to report it directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, you should just delete that .hta file. Definitely don't run it.
