It isn't just the Adobe readers it is basically any reminder you get to download an update be it Microsoft or
whoever - always go to their website to do the updating.  That is what the bank fraud department warned us to do in future

The warning about downloading updates are a wake up call for me
as I do get a number of these  -in fact Adobe flash reader is always coming up.
 
Going back to my original post tho' about what turned out to be a 'Fake Anti Virus'
program - this wasn't an email but simply a warning that appeared out of the blue
on my screen prompting me to take action -which I did! To my regret, although
no damage done.
What pointless stuff!

Bit off topic, but I was in the bank the other day when a man came in and said some random guy from the US had telephoned him to say that there are some shares that are going to rocket, and to go into the bank and pay 5000 into this US guys account. All three bank staff on duty said to the man that it was a fraud but the man was adament he was going to pay the money. In the end the bank made him sign a sheet to say that they were under no liability if it was fraud. Sad really, how people in the world can even consider basically stealing 5000 from someone...  :((
