Adobe Flash in Microsoft Edge

On February 6, Windows Update installed an Adobe Flash Update (Security Update for Adobe Flash Player For Windows 10 Version 1709 - KB4074595).

However, after clicking into a website in the Microsoft Edge browser, Norton denied access, removed, then Quarantined some Adobe Flash malware.

Three entries in Norton's Security History are as follows:

On 2/17/18:

1)  .......appdata/local/packages/microsoftedge_8weky.........................../flashplayer[1].hta

Access Denied

2)  The next entry says:  Same, Removed

3)  Last entry says flashplayer[1].hta, ISB.Downloader!gen48 (Detected by Auto-Protect)

Quarantined

All of these entries have a High Severity Level.

My question is, Why is this happening since the update for Flash was already installed on February 6?  As far as I know, Microsoft has not released any patches for Flash since the update on February 6.

Norton, I'm asking you if you know of any patches that need to be installed and, if so, where do I go in the Internet to get it?  Looking in the user/appdata/local folder, this ISB Downloader is occurring within the Microsoft Edge browser.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: Adobe Flash in Microsoft Edge

Maybe a fake Flash Player tried to install?

Or maybe an attempted exploit of Flash Player on your system.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Definitely sounds like malware disguised as a fake Adobe Flash installer, which is a very common trick used by malware writers.  Obviously, this is completely unrelated to the real Adobe Flash version you may currently have installed.

Install an ad blocker in your browsers to help fight against this kind of scam pop up.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

An ad blocker would not have stopped it, it was a self extraction type virus

Re: Adobe Flash in Microsoft Edge

Ad blockers and JavaScript blockers prevent the browser from connecting to third-party websites hosting the malware (usually a redirect to a malicious advertisement).  If your browser doesn't reach the host site, it doesn't matter what type of virus is lurking there, you are not going to be at risk.  The main website itself (MSN, in this case) would need to be compromised in order to potentially infect your PC - which can happen, but is much rarer than redirects to secondary sites that are malicious.
