A remotely loaded SWF may try to render its controls over the top of the loading SWF in an attempt to perform a spoofing attack.By overlaying the parent SWF, the malicious SWF can hijack control from the loading SWF file.This section provides a brief overview of the different high-level threats that you should consider when developing SWF applications.Although there are more granular threats that could be defined within a specific context for any SWF file, this overview covers the high-level threats common to most SWF deployments.However, that only addresses half of the overall solution to help securely deploy applications that run in Flash Player.As the web developer, you must also correctly leverage the tools provided by the Adobe Action Script language and the Flash Player platform to help ensure that your SWF files are more secure.This article outlines many of the security considerations associated with common tasks and provides samples of techniques that can be used to help secure code against those threats.

These attacks could occur whenever the end-user can gain control over movies that are loaded by a parent SWF file.Poor programming conventions can expose SWF files and the sites that host them to web attacks.Adobe provides many resources for developers—such as the Flash Player security section of the Programming Action Script 3.0 for Flash documentation—to assist with developing more secure code.In some instances, website owners may host third-party SWF files on their site.
