Scam of the day – July 15, 2013 – Latest Adobe patches

As I have told you many times previously, identity thieves are constantly searching for and then exploiting vulnerabilities in the software we use for purposes of identity theft and scams.  The makers of the software we use are also constantly working, but they are working to fix those vulnerabilities.  It is critical that you update your software with the latest patches and updates as soon as you can to avoid becoming a victim of identity theft.  Recently the Department of Homeland Security issued an alert about new security patches for the Adobe Flash Player that so many of us use and I urge you to update your computer’s software.

TIPS

Here is a link to the Department of Homeland Security’s alert regarding new patches for Adobe Flash Player software that, in turn, has links to Adobe to enable you to download the patches.
