It’s hard to believe that Flash Player 9 was released nearly two years ago. Along with it came a white paper that focused on the security-relevant features of the Flash Player client runtime, including those introduced in earlier versions of the product. Today the Flash Player team updated it for the security model implemented in Flash Player 9 April 2008 Security Update (version 9,0,124,0). This updated white paper includes a revised “website controls” section that addresses the recent changes to policy files and header sending permissions.
