#scammers often use tricks like this to make #unsuspecting users think they need to update their #flash plugin, or download some other type of #video plugin. We received a warning from our anti-virus software. We decided to stop here, and we recommend that you do the same. As with third party Facebook applications, you should be careful about the #browser extensions that you install. If you are lucky, then you might get a bunch of #adware installed to your browser. Rogue browser extensions are known to be malware #delivery agents. You are totally at the mercy of the add-on developer! Only install add-ons from trusted, well-known sources!
