So, it seems like nowadays everybody knows, what spamming means.
Nevertheless, Adobe makes sure we remember how obtrusive and impudent a spammer is.
Adobe, the spammer.
When updating (once standard and still very common) flash player for browsers, users get an install of some alleged security tool (“free McAfee Security Scan Plus“, what an awful naming monster with a must “PLUS” add-on).
McAfee, another spammer.
What makes the situation worse – is that the “security tool” is supposedly typical snake oil, which I would call a useless Piece Of Software (POS). It is not a real antivirus or security tool, I guess, and only tries to sell users some other POS (I do not know exactly and only guess here, because I try to avoid any POS from spammers, so I didn’t install it).
Considering, that flash is still very common and Adobe is spamming users with unwanted installs of McAfee tool while updating the flash player, I think I know, where the problem is.
But here is the question: what can we do?! Is html5 the great saviour?)
