Vulnerable systems: unpatched "standalone Flash

versions before January 2002?)


The first article (from McWilliams at Newsbytes),
states that:

"Neither the new vulnerability nor January's
SWF/LFM-926 virus affects the millions of users of
Macromedia's browser-based Flash plug-in or ActiveX
control. Those players do not have access to special
commands, and Flash files played back through a
browser are secure, according to Macromedia. "


"'Since these flaws only affect the authorware version
of Flash, it's unlikely they'll be exploited in a
widespread way,' said Coursen."
