Hi there, 

 

I received a notification upon restarting my computer that Flash player 32 needed to be updated. Naturally I clicked the link, considering the look and feel of the pop up, as well as the page I was directed to, resembled the Adobe palette. 

 

I got suspicious when I saw the 'Adchoice' logo on the page, but this was already after the 'update' was installed. I have since removed flash player. Please advise whether this is a legitimate Adobe update link:

 

https://get3.adobe.com/flashplayer/download/?installer=FP_32_for_Firefox_-_NPAPI&os=Windows%2010&bro...

 

Kind Regards

 

Jason

That is a genuine link. However my recommendation is never to click links in update notifications, as they are a big source of attacks. Instead, if you believe you need an update, go to http://get.adobe.com/flash . if you use multiple browsers, repeat in each browser.
