Script to Uninstall Adobe Flash Player on Mac OSX

Does anyone have a working script, or even an idea on how to script the silent removal of Adobe Flash Player from a Mac? It's easily done on Windows using a script that runs the Adobe uninstall tool, but can't yet find a suitable way to do it on the Mac. Thanks for any ideas you might have.

For Windows:

This is what I'm using for our environment. You will need to download the uninstaller from the adobe website, then you create an Online Kscript like the picture below, include the .exe as a dependency.

It works like a charm, no user interaction is needed.


For macOS:

I use an Online ShellScript


# Pull current logged in user into 'user' variable.
user=`ls -l /dev/console | cut -d " " -f 4`

#Uninstalling Flash Player now
sudo /Applications/Utilities/Adobe\ Flash\ Player\ Install\ Manager.app/Contents/MacOS/Adobe\ Flash\ Player\ Install\ Manager -uninstall

#Removes old installation logs if any

sudo rm -rf /Applications/Adobe/Flash\ Player
