use Adobe Flash Player

Description
Adobe Flash Player is affected by multiple vulnerabilities. If you
open a malicious Flash file, which may be hosted on a website, an
attacker may be able to take control of your computer or cause it
to crash. The Adobe Security Bulletin provides updates that address
these vulnerabilities.

It is strongly recommended to update to the newest Adobe Flash Player
Adobe has issued an update to patch several security holes in its Flash player. Most people will have some version of Flash installed on their computers, so it’s a good idea to take a moment and make sure your system receives this update. Updates are available for Flash on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Solaris systems.

The Flash installer should remove any older versions on your system before installing the newest one, so there’s no need to manually uninstall your existing Flash installation before updating. The installer should also update the Flash plug-in for multiple browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera, all in one go. But it’s still a good idea after updating to visit this link to Adobe’s About Flash page — with each of the browsers you use — to make sure its Flash install has been updated.

If for some reason you encounter problems while trying to install the update, check out Adobe’s Flash support page, which includes some FAQs on common issues as well as a help center search box for more complicated questions.

Once you have the latest version installed be sure to check your privacy settings (BELOW).
