On July 8th, 2015, the Adobe Flash Player Install Manager popped-up on my iMac (Yosemite 10.10.3) directing me to a screen with an update from:
The file that was downloaded was:
which installed the new version of Adobe Flash Player 184.108.40.206
Then I came across the following discussion and felt quite concerned:
I'm not sure what I downloaded is a legitimate file or may be malware, etc.
I later went to directly to the adobe.com website and the file that was downloaded was different:
I have not tried to install it.
Today I uninstalled the questionable version of Flash Player from my iMac and ran Intego's VirusBarrier - nothing suspicious was found. Am I in for a headache having installed something illegitimate? Or is it safe to now install AdobeFlashPlayer_18_a_install.dmg?
Note: Today, July 9th, 2015, the same message from Adobe Flash Player Install Manager popped-up on my 17" MacBookPro (OS X 10.9.5), but I didn't trust updating that way and went directly to the adobe.com website to get AdobeFlashPlayer_18_a_install.dmg
Thanks so much!
