    Doesn't mean you were actually vulnerable.

    Sounds like the embedded SWF that your computer downloaded had something inside of it (maybe signatures, probably heuristic) that your AV detected as a threat.

    However, for the exploit to work Flash has to actually be vulnerable. If you're running the latest flash, this is unlikely and even without the AV you were probably fine.

    Flash is pretty good these days at keeping exploits patched, unlike Java.

    Sue Mark Zuckerberg for attacking your computer with trojan and it's time to use a plugin like ABP in your browser and good firewall on your computer

    That would be hilarious. Start gather the hordes of lawyers!

    I am not sure if I blocked the flash updates from being automatic

    I am not that worried, it is more the fact that this is going on with such a large site.
