 I just upgraded to OSX Yosemite.

I am trying to open my Adobe Flash CS6 app, but it says

To open "Flash" you need to install the legacy Java SE 6 runtime.

A simple google search yields this page: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6604985

Regarding the legacy java se 6 runtime.download

Go to https://www.apple.com/support/ then search for DL1572

See Apple Knowledge Base pages often blank

Original KB link appears to be working again.

Would appear to have been an Apple issue, now resolved.
