    FLASHUTIL32_25_0_0_148_PEPPER Warning


    Hi. My WinPatrol has just sent me this warning:


    FLASHUTIL32_25_0_0_148_PEPPER Warning [​IMG]


    I removed the update via WinPatrol and also 'killed it' - that only stops it appearing on start-up and later - it doesn't remove it from my PC of course.

    I searched and found this thread from Sept 2014 https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...b-68a42ec6e8fd

    I've visited several sites this week where this fake alert popped up. I didn't click on it knowing that Patch Tuesday was bound to bring yet another Update for Flash, which it did. So I can't understand why it's still trying to install.

    The offending program is FLASHUTIL32_25_0_0_148_PEPPER.

    I've just run Malwarebytes Free and it gave me the all clear. What do you recommend I should do next please?

    PS I haven't got Skype.

    :)

    Fake Adobe Flash Update - Skype users hit too

    Having dug deeper in WinPatrol, I found the file name -

    FLASHUTIL32_25_0_0_148_PEPPER

    Searching has indicated that it's malware eg this article in
    >isthisfilesafe.com <
    so I'll now have to do all the usual tests etc to make sure it really was blocked by WinPatrol.

    As I've said many times before, I hope that Microsoft will find a way to drop Flash altogether - it's riddled with security flaws and many acknowledged experts have advised users to remove it. Unfortunately I can't - I need it for Microsoft and for a few
    utility companies.

  5. Windows does not update pepper flash, only activex. The version seems legitimate.
    You can download this, it is beta version, it does not contain junk like a normal installer.
