Can OP or Admin update the heading of said topic ? better yet, just change it to Adobe Flash Player Direct Downloads ... that way it doesn't have to be edited every time there's an update ? This is probably a good idea, assuming the link will continue to point to the current version. Cheers and Reg...

@xkp, Dibya's comments were meant for you. He believes, as I do, that those were false positives you received. The script he mentioned was this one, if you would feel more comfortable using an addon/installer that you make yourself so that you can be sure what is in it.
