I have an email from "Adobe Systems" announcing a Critical Security update for Flash Player on my Mac system. The bulletin is titled "APSB20-06" and it appears to have come from Ireland. Is this a real download?
It's a real fix, but a fake email. These are being sent by the million, and have fake links that will give you a virus or worse. Delete the email or forward it to email@example.com .
To update Flash Player go to http://get.adobe.com/flash
Unless you signed up to receive notifications (see https://helpx.adobe.com/security.html) it's a fake notification. Mostly, it's enterprise customers that sign up for security notifications, so it's most likely a fake notification and we've recently seen an uptick in fake security notificatiorns.
Please forward the email (as an attachment) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Doesn’t matter if you know anyone in Ireland. It’s a fake, and dangerous. You could lose your money or worse.
