Flash Player Upgrade Required

"Flash Player Upgrade Required" is a message that many users get, when they are busy browsing the internet. This usually occurs from a fake Facebook page, where a message is displayed, prompting users to download the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. This message will be displayed to users when they land on a Facebook page that is actually a scam. The fundamental problem with this particular scam is that it looks authentic and users, who are frequent Facebook users, may find it extremely difficult to be able to identify that it is fake. It has been created by malicious online characters to look identical to other popular Facebook pages, users are not meant to be able to tell the difference.

The "Flash Player"update window is actually fake and once a user click on this, it will generate very malicious consquences.Once a user proceeds to click on the "update" link, it will actually install a new created problem which is called: Trojan-Downloader.Win32.CodecPack.2GCash.Trojan-Downloader.Win32.CodecPack.2GCash makes use of fake codec videos in order to trick victims. Once you have Trojan-Downloader.Win32.CodecPack installed on your machine, then your problems may start, as it is able to install various other malicious threats onto your machine. Remember if you see a Facebook page that prompts you to update your Flash Player in order to view movies that seem exciting, it is all one big scam. You will not get an updated Flash Player; you will rather get many computer problems, which you would be better off without.

    If we are talking on who to blame when we are talking about who made this parasite, then i cant tell you. The online world is really a anonymous place.

    If we are talking on who to blame that it got into a computer, that of course a user, who is clicking on suspicious links, or opening such e-mails, and not being protected by an up to date security software.
