I keep getting this message pop up when I visit macrumors, using safari.

Anyone know what its about?

Adobe® Flash® Player has stopped a potentially unsafe operation. The following local application on your computer or network:

/about/blank

is trying to communicate with this Internet-enabled location:

js.moatads.com

To let this application communicate with the Internet, click Settings.
You must restart this application after changing your settings.

Is this just a trick to make me get malware software? Not just the reply I'm quoting but the popup Flash warning?
I would say so..... I think the original error was to try and get you to install some malware too.

I don't get the error anymore.

Sorry I didn't reply earlier, I've got all notifications turned off.
