    Interesting though I don't dabble in bitcoins so its a non issue for me. As always be careful of what you install

    Indeed! I'm sure most are aware of the trojan Genieo that piggybacks on a fake "Flash Update." So, yes, be careful what you download and if you think Flash needs an update go to Adobe.com and download from their site. As Reagan once stated: "Trust but verify."
