I killed your URL for that... that shit is an adware/spyware installer ... just a heads up... anyone who downloaded that should do a little house cleaning :)

Not very funny now is it... never download a 'video' that is an EXE ;-)

It's not in the actual flash... it's in the exe. The author could do anything he wanted with that... and yes, dispite my hesitation I ran it... I thought "oh it just has the player imbedded" ~~ but right after that I had spyware... a lot of it........ got it all cleaned up. DYFUCA and a few others were installed.

Ok I scanned my computer with 3 different spy ware programs and my computer checked out clean.... then ran the movie and nothing was installed. :roll:

This is the publish options for Macromedia Flash MX. As you can see .exe is an option. I have also looked into the posiblity of installing spyware using the action script for flash. It is highly unlikely but I guess it could be possible. You would still need to have extra files other then the flash file itself.

Well I did think about what Ca3le Guy said before I ran it And I did run several anti-hijacking pgms. after wards,my home page was changed after I ran it, I cant remember the name of it,but it is one I have seen before.I am certain anytime I run that kinda stuff I am opening myself up for problems.Also for the average user who may not have their PC setup to find and KILL that shit it could be a nightmare.Sometimes I think I'm bullet proof but thats not true,It has only been a couple of months ago when I got jacked big time,I even refer to this in some of my old post,I did get rid of it eventually after formatting etc.so I was never able to find out just what and where the bullshit was.Thats why I have to agree with Ca3le Guy on this one not because I'm being an ass kisser but because I agree it is and can be dangerous shit even when it doesn't appear to be causing a problem.Its just the idea of some asswipes putting shit on my PC and knowing how much porn I look at or which site I visit etc....of course it does keep comp techs busy hehehe anyway, blah blah blah~~~ Ca3le Guy must protect HIS site for everyone so I think thats the key issue....have fun and be careful a PC doesn't have a built in jimmy jacket.. :lol:

I agree with that! However, I am not seeing what you are reporting... the home page change, spyware installed, and other kind of stuff. I might just have my security settings set so that I am not seeing these changes, I have no idea. I have worked with flash for a few months now and I have never seen something like this.
