Warning to remove Flash

Adobe plans to release an emergency patch to fix the vulnerability, but this is not expected before 16 October 2015, which means all users of Flash will remain vulnerable until then.

Re: Warning to remove Flash

Google Chrome comes with Flash built in which it sand boxes making it (allegedly) safe(r)  to run.

I have uninstalled Flash but have been using Google Chrome on sites where Flash is required.
