Scam of the day – March 15, 2013 – Important Adobe Flash Player Updates

Adobe, which makes the flash Player used by many of us on our computers and portable devices has just issued new security updates to correct vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers to install malware on your computer or portable device that would enable the hacker to steal all of the information from your computer as well as control your computer and make it part of a botnet, a network of computers taken over by hackers that use your computer to spread malware.  It is important to install these latest software security updates as soon as possible.  As I have often said, hackers are constantly working to detect and exploit security flaws in the software we use.  Software developers are working just as hard to plug up vulnerabilities as they are discovered.  Therefore it is critical to your personal security to install updates as soon as they are available.
