I was using pogo to play Yatzee, and it was there that I picked up a nasty malware that started by the page telling me that I needed to update my flash player.  I hade been playing my game on that site for about a month with no problems.  So is Pogo not a safe site?  Are any of them safe?  How do you know if a requirement to update software is real or not?

The pop up which you saw, was most likely 99% fake, there has been an epidemic of rouge fake flash player updates. They trick users into downloading the program which then proceeds to download and install adware along with downloading the legitimate software. The only place you should be getting your flash updates or downloads would be from the official adobe.com now, as for whether or not pogo is a safe site or not, I do not know since I do not use that website. ~Zestypanda.

Hello mam, I'm just checking in to see if you still require assistance on this issue, or any of your other ones.
