    Why covert installation of McAfee?

      I just was notified that there was an update for the Adobe Flash Player

       

      https://get3.adobe.com/flashplayer/completion/aih/?exitcode=0&type=update&appid=200

       

      I started the download, looked at the progress, and saw that the download was attempting to download and install McAfee virus software.

       

      I was highly offended. There was no obvious notice that Adobe was attempting to covertly install McAffee on my computer. Fortunately, my machine is an enterprise machine, and this was thus blocked.

      However, I find this underhanded marketing attempt deplorable.
