    Security breach after updating FlashPlayer

    bafungoo2002

      I just submitted a detailed description and request to Adobe security.  Briefly, I have been experiencing numerous security breaches in the form of spoofs asking for re-updates of software I have just updated, including FP and Java.  I may have been a victim of a drive by attack during one of my attempts to install the FP update.  I'm running FireFox on Win7 64bit.  I checked and I'm running the latest vsn of FP.

       

      Here is the URL for one of the latter:

         Many other suspicious URLs are from cloudfront as well.

        Has anyone else experienced these?

         What can I do to repair this obvious security problem?
