I dont think this is any malware.
Omniture tracker blocking in
Ghostery will block Adobe Flash Player to terminate correctly (comment by anonymous user n° 34727, verified personally).
It does consider to track us more important than to perform a correct install.
Unfortunatly since many years and many versions of Adobe Flash Player installer, this is the way that this installer is behaving.
The core of the problem is that Flash installer is behaving as a typical malware:
- you don't see which version you are installing;
- you can't check if this is a valid installer;
- you can't check if it is fixing any of your bugs;
- you can't check if it risk to break something within your working environment.
Since all versions since many years have goten the same window look, it is too easy to make a fake one.
These are bad practice of course, since no user will be able to disambiguate a normal Flash Player installer from a real malware.
Personnal point of vue:
I consider this software as a basically risky one developped by a
company Adobe which doesn't care of customers, quality and security.
