    This is the second time i've been redirected to a "Shockwave Player" update at the stratics home page. The download bar says that the download may be dangerous to my computer, so I close out the page.

    Is this a hack, bug, or legit?

    It's likely either a shady Ad, or unfortunately it may be an infection on your PC.. So let me ask some questions!

    1. Are you using an Ad-blocker
    2. When you get redirected is there an entry showing up in your Browser History.

    1. I don't know what an ad-blocker is, but I have McAfee internet security active.
    2. I don't know how to check my browser history.

    sorry for being unable to provide helpful information.

    FYI: Is probably this as it forced me to update as well... but NOT from the Adobe site which is bad juju.

    I went to adobe, updated the player, and no more warning. Try that.

    FYI to admins: should check the source site for credibility, and ask them WHY they are not redirecting their flash updates directly to Adobe instead of going through some other party. Bad juju.
