Yet if you encounter a website that asks to install the Adobe Flash Player app, stay away!

Flash itself was discontinued in 2020 and is no longer supported. Therefore, any update prompts using Flash could be a security threat.

Fake Flash messages are being used as a cover for a new botnet campaign that installs a malicious browser extension, known as Cloud9. If you use Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, you may be a target.

Botnets are formed by a group of hacked devices that are controlled as a group, without the owners' knowledge, stealing sensitive information, sending spam, and performing DDoS attacks.

It is difficult to differentiate this attack because it appears to be a valid request, and many people can become a target.
However, there are several actions you can take to secure your business.

Clarify the actual threat. If people know what sorts of things to look out for, an update is less likely to be installed.
Make sure everyone running the latest version of their browser and antivirus software.
