Flash is currently responsible for several very nasty zero day ransomware/viruses. While I don't want Flash, I love the software. Is there a way to continue running Scotland Yard without the pitfalls of Adobe Flash?
No, there is no way to run the software without Adobe Flash. However, Adobe patched those zero day vulnerabilities. You will have to update everything that uses Adobe Flash. For example, update Chrome and the NPAPI plug-in for Firefox. Chrome can be updated via the About menu while the plug-in needs to be redownloaded from the Adobe page.
