Adobe issues emergency Flash update for Windows and Mac

Quote:
Adobe is recommending that users update their Flash Players immediately -- especially those who frequent Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. The company released an emergency security bulletin on Tuesday that addresses vulnerabilities in Flash, which could be exploited by hackers.

"This vulnerability could allow an attacker to remotely take control of the affected system," Adobe wrote in a blog post. "Adobe is aware of reports that an exploit for this vulnerability exists in the wild, and recommends users apply the updates referenced in the security bulletin."

Is this necessary if I only use the same trusted websites every day?

Yes, absolutely.
Here's another post on it.

The threat is a flaw in Flash Player, not websites.

Adobe Flash: Insecure, outdated, and here to stay

Quote:
With all the head-shaking over Windows XP, aka The OS That Refused to Die, let's also spare a thought for The Plug-in That Refuses to Die: Adobe Flash.
If Flash deserves to perish, it's mainly because it's an insecure mess. New exploits for Flash show up routinely. Enterprises, which often lag in applying updates, regularly run outdated versions of Flash. Back in 2011, Adobe admitted Flash is a developmental dead end, especially for mobile -- yet Flash continues to stick around.
