Hi kevinh2070914 ,The only official/legitimate Flash Player installers come from adobe.com (or macromedia.com) domains.  They definitely don't come fro peziei-max.org.  If you still have the URL (in browser history) of the site, or the file download URL (in download history), please private message it to me and I'll forward it to the fraud team.  To send a private message, click on my user_name link and then on the 'Message' button link.As the kglad said, you definitely want to run a full system...

Probably garbage, and you should NEVER install from a non-Adobe link

it's probably worse than garbage, http://www.scamadviser.com/check-website/peziei-max.org

you need to run some virus, malware and keylogger checks on your computer.

As the kglad said, you definitely want to run a full system check on your system to unearth anything this malicious installer may have installed on your system.

You

Fellow Adobe Community Member here. I have received Adobe Flash Update requests from not only "peziei-max.org" but "https://aebootechgigs.org as well. Each on with the official Adobe Flash Window that pops up asking you to click and update your version of Adobe Flash. Staff Member Maria is correct. Adobe.com is the only place any Flash updates will come from. Thanks -Maria. These other sites have each sent me a file tied to their Flash Update Window Popup (using the official Adobe Logo). It is labeled "JS.Downloader" that is actually a file named "flashplayer[1].hta" that does have a Virus attached to it, and will damage your computer. A good Antivirus software in your computers will see it, quarantine it, and remove it for you... ultimately protecting you and you computer... as it does mine. A good Antivirus Software I use is "Norton 360 Security Suite" to assist me with this same issue. I hope this helps everyone.

Thank You, -MAX

Thank you for reporting the additional URL.  I have reported both domains to our security/fraud team for follow-up.

Hi,

The pop-up you are seeing is not a legitimate Flash Player update. Thanks for reporting the same. We will forward it to the phishing team. Any Flash Player updates would be from get3.adobe.com url.

Thanks!
