Update Flash fix security flaws!

Browsing the web today I noticed that some Flash videos were not playing, and I saw this message:

"This plugin is vulnerable and should be updated".

The option to check and update Flash in Iceweasel told me I had the latest version, but Adobe has issued a security update for Flash.

As I have mentioned before, Flash updates are not automatically downloaded in Debian- a user has to do:
# update-flashplugin-nonfree --install

Restart the browser afterwards to load the updated Flash player.
