    liveupdate.upgrade-pro.org: Malware install

    KauaiZ

      My Safari 8.08 running on Yosemite 10.10.5

      started getting notices from liveupdate.upgrade-pro.org that Flash was out of date.

       

      That trace routes to europe:

      18  62-210-93-163.rev.poneytelecom.eu (62.210.93.163)  351.661 ms  371.931 ms  235.220 ms

       

      A couple of dialogue boxes will come up that result in you downloading a .dmg file that looks like it may have come from Adobe.

      adobe_flashplayer_e2c7b_Setup.dmg.  Since this happens multiple times you may end up with several of these files.

      (I ended up with 10 or more)

       

      But if you mount it, the "install" button is junk.

       

      I went to the adobe site and updated Flash from there.  This did not stop the pop-ups.

       

      I had to clear my Safari history for the last day  And

      From the Flash Preferences panel, I deleted all local storage settings and under the Advanced Tab I deleted all browsing and data settings.

      I also unchecked the "open safe files" option in Safari Preferences

       

      This did not fix the problem.  While on wunderground.com a new dialogue box has shown up.

      Anyone have a clue how to stop it?
