I keep getting a pop-up in the (Windows10) Edge browser offering to update Flash Player. The message appears to come from 'toom6multirho.com'. The graphic presented looks like it's genuine Adobe, but it doesn't say what version will be installed and I've never heard of that 'toom6multirho.com'. I don't trust that pop-up, because I get a lot of obviously malicious pop-ups.
Is it safe to allow a Flash Player update to be installed from 'toom6multirho.com'?
That is a scam from a hacked web site
That is not an official Flash Player update notification and is a scam, as OP mentions. The bad actors are very good at investing time to make their malicious update notifications look just like official notifications, forcing users to be very vigilant when getting the notifications. I'll request that the next time you get the notification, take a screenshot of it, including the entire, full, URL, and send it to email@example.com.
Thank you for confirming that it’s a scam. I’ve marked your answer “correct” and have forwarded the screen shot to firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com> .
I also tried to add the screen shot to the thread, but was unable to find the camera icon to embed the screen shot.
It's also worth noting that Edge includes the Flash plug-in. Updates come directly from Microsoft in Windows 10 automatic updates, and it is not necessary and not possible to install updates any other way. But... fake updates can install just fine !
Thanks for the additional note. I had read that Flash was integrated into Edge, but didn’t realize that meant the updates would necessarily come from Microsoft. That makes sense!
