I read the news earlier this week about the fake Flash update, and I just ran into it. I'm not sure how it happened though! I'm using Safari and while visiting a site I had "Flash Player Install Manager" open itself and try to get me to continue, with dire warnings of security issues if I didn't update (I wish I'd taken a screenshot). However, Safari's Downloads window was empty and no DMG (or any other filetype) was added to my download folder. Is this a newer, more "silent" type of attack? I force quit the installer and for good measure installed the latest Flash from Adobe's site, but I'm not sure how this "updater" managed to sneak onto my system! Any ideas? Should I look for any particular files that may now be hiding on my system? I don't see anything odd in Activity Monitor. Thanks Edit: False alarm, see posts 10 and 11 for details.
