Adobe Flash Player Update May Affect Platform Applications

Tagged:  

If you are a developer of Facebook applications your applications may be affected by the new security patch release for Flash 9. The patch will be distributed this April (so, it will be released very soon and no this isn't an early "April Fools" joke).

Below is an excerpt from the announcement by Facebook.

If any of the following situations apply to your application, then your application could be affected by the update.

  • You use sockets or XMLSockets, regardless of the domain to which you are connecting
  • You use addRequestHeader or URLRequest.requestHeaders in any network API call when sending or loading data cross-domain
  • You provide access to content on remote domains as a web service provider
  • You have SWFs that are exported for Flash Player 7 (SWF7) or earlier that communicate with the hosting HTML by any means

You can read the full post here. Also, you can read the Adobe post here.

If you develop Facebook applications or if you are a Flash developer then you will want to look into how this may affect your applications.
