Two bugs, one affecting Apple's Mac platform and another attacking Microsoft's Windows, exploit certain Flash player vulnerabilities to install malware onto users' systems, reports ArsTechnica. While users of other operating systems like Linux have yet to report attacks, Adobe's advisory notes the exploit affects all platforms.
Designated as CVE-2013-0634, the first vulnerability targets the Safari and Firefox Web browsers running on OS X, and is also being used as a trojan to deploy Microsoft Word documents containing malware. For Mac users, the flaw affects Adobe Flash Player version 11.5.502.146 or earlier.

Just fixed it but not that way....
I went to Machintosh HD > Library > Internet Plugins > and deleted one of two Flash PLayer plugins, which are like this....
_Flash Player.Plugin and Flash Player.Plugin
I delited the first one... _Flash Player.Plugin and downloaded the new update....
Aparently, like I read in another post, Adobe didnt remove the old version in the update causing that mess.
