A command prompt window was open during the update process.

Hacked by a scammer with screens that "look" valid but are not

The ONLY place to go is Adobe Flash Player Install for all versions

Hi,

The update you are seeing is not from a legitimate source. All updates for Flash Player will be from get3.adobe.com url. We will forward the url to the phishing team. Please do not update Flash Player using the above link.

As to your query that you have not installed Flash Player, Windows 10 comes with pre-installed Flash Player(for IE and Edge browsers) and all updates are pushed by Microsoft as part of Windows update. In case you install Flash Player for Firefox or Opera browsers you will be prompted for updates if you are not selecting Silent Updates.

Thanks!
