Fake Adobe Flash Update closely resembles real site

QUOTE: One of our Web Security Analysts came across a website (118,000 ranking in Alexa) that drives users into installing a fake Adobe Flash Player file. The site prompts a message requesting the user download "a new version of Adobe Flash Player" in order to view a video on the site.  Based on a reverse domain lookup on the malware link, the fake site is hosted in Bulgaria.  Updates to the latest antivirus definitions to detect this threat.
