Poor Flash Design Decisions Put Users and Websites at Risk
A security researcher stresses, despite of Adobe's rebuttal
Adobe has recently rebutted the claims of a security researcher, according to whom a design flaw in the way Flash Player executes SWF files can put websites accepting user uploads at risk. The professional now says the company totally missed the point and that its expectations of webmasters to address this are completely unrealistic.
Almost two weeks ago, we reported about the security risks of misconfigured crossdomain.xml files. These files contain rules for Flash's cross-domain access policy. However, more recently, a security researcher named Mike Bailey has exposed an ever more dangerous issue with Flash's same origin policy.
