A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted SWF
file using Adobe Flash Player, possibly resulting in execution of
arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service
condition. Furthermore, a remote attacker may be able to bypass the Same
Origin Policy or read the clipboard via unspecified vectors.
There is no known workaround at this time.
