I tried replying to the post at "https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/662012/fake-adobe-flash-player-update-popup/"
In that post, the writer said this:
This popup tries to get me to update Adobe Flash Player. It starts with a warning page with the heading "Your Version of Flash Player May Be Outdated". Then a second popup appears with buttons to "Update" or "Save File". A screenshot should be attached. Note that the website of origin is "https:softwarecentraldownload.com".
I initially thought this was legitimate, and clicked on "Update". However, my antivirus caught it, and nothing was downloaded, as far as I know. At that point I realized the Flash Player logo was obviously fake.
Oddly, it seems I get this popup only while I'm on the www.foxnews.com website, which I look at multiple times each day. I have not seen it any other time so far.
I was going to reply with:
We have had the same issue but it has been happening when we are on drudgereport.com using Google Chrome. Drudge required that we disable our ad blocker a while back. I would hate to think that this popup is one of their sponsored ads. And, since it is highly suspicious, we have just closed the tab when we get the popup. We would like to know what it is so we can stop getting it! I have been doing a number of Google searches and have not found very much on this yet.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
