    hey scumbags, don't opt-in to mcafee by default

      Seriously, this is not acceptable.

       

      Flash popped a helpful "You need to update" dialog - I hit update, it auto-downloads, and AUTOMATICALLY TRIES TO INSTALL MCAFEE GARBAGE.

       

      I cancel it mid-install, delete the file immediately, and try going to download it manually, in search of the opt-out that used to exist.

       

      Hit up http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ and yet again, it AUTODOWNLOADS WITH THE OPTION FLAGGED TO INSTALL IT AGAIN.

       

      I had to cancel the page again and FINALLY made it to a page with an opt-out. What on earth were you thinking?
