MPSB02-09 - Macromedia Flash Malformed Header Vulnerability Issue
Originally posted: August 8, 2002
Last updated: August 8, 2002

Summary
Macromedia has recently become aware of a vulnerability where a hand edited malformed Macromedia Flash movie (SWF) header can be exploited to cause a buffer over-write issue which could potentially lead to execution of arbitrary code.

Issues
This can only occur with Macromedia Flash movies (SWF) that have been hand edited with a binary editor; Macromedia Flash the authoring tool will not output movies with this vulnerability.

Solution
Customers should follow the recommendations found in this bulletin and download the newer Flash Player when it is available.

What Macromedia Is Doing
Macromedia has isolated the issue and released an updated player (6,0,40,0) which is available for download on the Macromedia Player Download Center.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Macromedia Flash Vulnerability!

Yea went nuts with the upgrade yesterday. Got the shockwave and flash installed just find and it worked great on netscape but not IE.
After doing install again and getting no where I downloaded there ininstalls too and then installed the shockwave and flash again and still got no where.

Then I went to hallmark cards and seen the flash. Open IE and did the same at hallmark cards but could not see the flash or ever the box it should be in and then it hit me. I was blocking to many things with Zone Alarm and lowered my settings and did the install and all works and tested out ok and then I changed ZA setting back to high.

Hey Guys,I was trying to install an older software and well, I thin I need a little bit of help.. When installing, I get an error:"Appropriate version of MAcromedia Flash Player not found! This software requires version 7.0 and above. Please visit http://www.macromedia.com to obtain the latest version!"If I have this right, somebody please feel free to correct me but adobe may have purchased Macromedia, thus the name change but I actually have installed the latest version of Adobe flash player version 10 i believe, and the software is not recognizing it. Is there any way around this. Perhaps installing and older version as well. Is it possible to run two version of Flash player so the software can use an older version but use the latest for say youtube and othe stuff like that?Thank you soo much for your attention in this matter, if anyone needs more details, please do not hesitate to ask and would be grateful for your help.hortoholic

For some reason Safari is nixing anything that appears on a web page that is Macromedia Flash supported. All I get is the Grayed-out Quicktime Logo. I have the latest Flash plugin installed and when I got to the Macromedia site to test it it works. But that seems to be the only time and place it will work. I cannot figure out whay Safari by default puts the kabash on these Flash programs.

I have Ad Blocker installed in my Firefox browser and Flash programs always appear by default with a "Ad Block" tab but the programs normally run unless I override them.

Anyone have a clue why Safari acts this way and , more importantly, how I can override the default?

When I load certain websites with flash ads and such, everything goes smoothly, untill the flash object loads and starts playing - once it loads the screen flickers and gets kind of hazy. Nothing is really effected or harmed, but the slight haziness/fuzziness is rather anoying. Once I exit the web browser, everything goes back to normal.

It doesn't matter whether I'm using Iexplorer or Opera, so I'm thinking it is directly related to the Macromedia flash player.

Tried to post this on another forum days ago, but we never got a response. (Maybe we posted on the wrong forum.)

We have a screensaver that we've had for years. All of a sudden, I am getting this message,

"Could not find the Macromedia Flash."

I went to the Marcromedia Flash website, and it says the latest version is installed.

Can anyone point us in the right direction? Thank you!

A:Macromedia Flash

The usual fix for flash player is to uninstall ALL versions and install the latest. You can uninstall the Macromedia flash player(s)through the Add/Remove program. To uninstall the Adobe Flashplayer (which bought out Macromedia Flashplayer) you will need to use the special uninstaller in the link below.http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewConten...7&sliceId=2Whether this will fix the problem with screensaver---I don't know. FOR EMPHASIS:Note: The uninstaller cannot remove files currently in use.If you have any instances of the player open in your web browsers, instant messaging clients, stand-alone SWFs, or projectors, then the uninstaller will complete but some files may not be deleted. If this occurs, then close all of your applications and run the uninstaller again to ensure that all files are removed.Adobe Flash Playerhttp://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/

Okay, I got this nice little game i found and i've downloaded it and i play it when i can. At school we have this game as well and everyone plays it in our spare time, and we save the game from the hard drive to the "server" (our own little folders we get for our projects and what not) and copy the folder "C:\documents and settings\(name)\application data\Macromedia\" to our server and the next day we come in we paste it back onto the computer (b/c they wipe them daily). So I'm trying to get my game to save, and when i click save no file is generated (C:\documents and settings\yanowhiz\application data\macromedia\flash player\local host\documents and settings\yanowhiz\extract\mark's junk\defend your castle.swf\) and at school there is a file that is there, (of course, not with the same username), however, my computer won't generate this file. How can I save this game? plez help!

Maybe you should, if the game has a "save as" or "save to" option, set up a separate folder on your hard drive and save it to there.

OK, so I guess it's about time I got this sorted once and for all.

Whenever I go to a site that requires flash, the browser window shuts itself down. Sometimes it shuts all browser windows down, sometimes just the one that has the flash object on it.

I'm using Win XP Home, IE 6 and the latest version of flash installed.

I've tried removing the flash and shockwave objects from C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files and reinstalling flash when required. Sometimes this briefly works, sometimes it doesn't. Same is true for the flash uninstaller that can be downloaded (though I forget where from).

So, I figure there must be some other program or windows setting messing with flash. My brother did a system restore a few months back, after which flash sites were viewable again, but since then it's reverted to it's unforgiving browser-killer action.

So, please, any help in fixing this problem?

It is on the adobe site in plain view.
What was formerly known as the free macromedia Flash 8 , is now simply Flash 8 or Flash 9.
What was known as the paid version is now, Flash Professional 8, perhaps the industry's most advanced authoring environment for creating interactive websites, digital experiences and mobile content. It is still downloadable, although the latest version is part of Adobe CSV 3

Greetings Kavehe, Welcome to TSF!

Perhaps you might like to try this workaround...

Adobe Flash ?fix?

Go Start > Run > type in the box C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash

Now copy the Flash9.ocx file and then pasted it back in the same directory.
You will have created Copy of Flash9.ocx; rename it to Flash.ocx..
This effectively will give you two files; Flash.ocx and Flash9.ocx, both the same file; although with a different name, in the same directory.

Give this a try and post back with the results.

A:Macromedia Flash Player 6?

It offers you the ability to display certain web content correctly. Some sites will not even display at all without it installed, as they are heavily loaded with flash programming.

It sounds as if this is a recent version that is not recognized by XP as having been certified. If you know that it is coming from Macromedia, then it shoudl still be safe to install.
If you want, you can go directly to Macromedia and download it and install. This way you know that you are getting it directly from them.

Hi there,
I've got a problem with flash mx 2004.
What I am trying to do is as follows:
- I insert about 50 images (each 2 mb)
- they move around the screen and then move outside the screen (so the images are still there and that uses a very lot of memory.)
- So after I displayed 45 images and after that my memory runs out, so flash player gives a runtime error.

I may have a idea how to fix it, but I don't know how to do that exactly.
The idea is to just unload or just to remove the image, let it disapeare from the movie, so it frees up memory.

Anyone got an idea, thx a lot

I don't know if this is the correct forum; if it isn't I'm sorry.

For some reason, I'm having trouble installing the Macromedia Flash Player. Well, specifically, I've been to the website dozens of times, and it says that Macromedia Flash Player has already been installed on my computer; there's an animation at the top of the screen, and if it's installed, I should see said animation; which I do. The thing is, is that if I go to some websites (YouTube for example), it says that I need the latest version of Macromedia Flash Player, which was just installed onto my computer.

Odd thing is, is that I've been to Newgrounds.com, and viewed some animations that require Macromedia Flash player, and those work.

I don't think this is a result of spyware or a virus (I'm clean; I do scans weekly), I'm just morally confused on why nothing's working.

You do not have to update Macromedia but if there was an update available, why would you not want to update?

alright let me start at the beginning. Firstly: i'm using xp media center' on a dell dimension 9200. i have rang tech and software support and they can not fix my problem (just take my ?) Every time i try and use any software that requires adobe flash/macromed flash player, i keep getting the same error, it say's that i need to install flash player, which i have uninstalled and then reinstalled manually and automatically, any web sites that require the same flash player all work fine...yet when i try and use any software that requires macromed flash' i get a request to install macromed' flash as previously mentioned. The software was all working fine, then a few weeks ago it all just stopped loading. I also at times get this error code C:Windowssystemem32\Macromed\Flash\flash9.ocx failed to register contact your support personnel hresult-2147220473 i have paid nearly?50 with a software tech' who could not work it out, if anyone out there can help me at all i would be so greatful, you just wouldn't believe it . I hope this makes sense "as it is the first time i've used a forum."Moderator Edit: Moved topic to more appropriate forum. ~ Animal
