Intrusive popup ads implanted in the Chinese version of Flash

Does Adobe aware that so-called "Chinese version" of Flash contains many intrusive popup ads (a window of news with tons of ads is shown at Windows startup, and popup ads are displayed occasionally at the bottom-right corner of desktop).

It seems that ads are from `C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\FlashHelperService.exe`.

I'm wondering if it is a deliberate and official action?

This really damages the company's reputation since we believe we were actually downloading a *Adobe* software, not some notorious adware.

Hi,

Yes Adobe is aware of these popup ads and they are because of the FlashHelperService. This Service is a required component for using Flash Player in China region.

Thanks,

Kajal
