Sorry if this seems a bit "provocative" but i highly feel that i should be reporting this straight to Adobe.

It seems whenever i visit xhamster.com on my Chrome browser for mac, i can get a random popup informing me that my Adobe Flash player is out of date.

I do used AdBlock as an extension if that helps anything out.

Of course i know that its completely fake but after searching up the urls i was able to find a Norton Security page that only confirmed that these popups lead to adware and other security threats. I was able to take screenshots and will provide them bellow:

I already reported this to the support team at xhamster, and i did send an email to the phishing team for Adobe.

But i feel that i needed to post this to both raise awareness or see if anyone else has been experiencing this as well.

Thank you for posting these.  I will forward them to the security/fraud team for follow-up.  In the future you can email them directly to the security/fraud team and phishing@adobe.com.
