An update has been released for Adobe Flash that fixes according to Adobe the recently discovered and exploited vulnerability CVE-2015-0313. Currently, the new version of Flash Player is only available as an auto-install update, not as a standalone download. To apply it, you need to check for updates within Adobe flash. (personal note: on my Mac, I have not seen the update offered yet).
The new Flash player version that fixes the problem is 126.96.36.1995. The old version is 188.8.131.526.
Adobe updated its bulletin to note the update: https://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/flash-player/apsa15-02.html
