Adobe has released security updates for Adobe Flash Player for Windows, Macintosh, Linux and ChromeOS.  These updates address critical vulnerabilities that could potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected system.  

You can check your current version of Flash here. If it’s not 23.0.0.185, you need to upgrade urgently here.

Many have chosen instead to simply uninstall the plug-in that refuses to die. I tried it myself, but BBC News insists on still using it for video content, despite using HTML5 on its mobile site, and I do prefer the desktop site.
