How to get a virus in a Flash……

I fell victim to the “update Adobe Flash” malware virus.

As of this morning Adobe has released an official security blog;

18 Vulnerabilities Fixed: Update your Flash Player

I don’t know if these fixes address what happened to me but this was such an inconvenience.  No, strike that, more than an inconvenience.

I don’t understand how in this day and age, with all of the security features these sorts of malicious cyber crimes continue?  What do the perpetrators get out of it?  And, couldn’t they put their valuable skills to work doing something good?

I wanted to warn you all so that it doesn’t happen to you.  Be careful!
