    Default Koobface

    My son (he tells me) "may have accidentally" clicked on the "Flash Player needs updating" that the KoobFace virus exploits. If my ZoneAlarm Security Suite was running then, would I have been protected and have nothing to worry about? What would have been the error message if this were so? Should I run a deep scan? Will it detect the changes to my system if in fact it is infected? Thanks.

    Operating System:Windows Vista Home Basic
    Software Version:8.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    media video&quot;- that they should use caution - not update right then and there; and instead stop and go directly to 'adobe' (or whatever) to update direct - the flash player.
    Adobe will be updating their flash player - click here &gt; http://forum.zonealarm.org/zonelabs/...ssage.id=19815
    &lt; please read adobe's advisories, (you may need to use their un-installer of your current adobe flash player, before installing the new 'security patched version')
