Question: Why am I receiving a message from Adobe Flash saying "Your Mac Might be Infected"?

I clicked on a link and received a message that I needed to update Adobe Flash. When I clicked to do the update, I received a message saying "Your Mac Might be Infected." On the same page, it gives instructions to remove any possible infections using Mac Cleaner. I haven't done anything because I don't know if this is real or a hack. Has anyone else seen this and followed through on it?

Only update Flash from Adobe's web site. Sites such as the one you visited are likely to install malware along with Flash.
