QUOTE: New versions of Flash Professional and the Flash Player were released today. The new Flash 10 player implements, among other new features, the ability to turn off clipboard access for Flash programs, and turns on this setting by default. This ability had recently become badly abused by malicious web sites as a cross-platform attack known as "Clipboard-Jacking." In all likelihood it has a new set of vulnerabilities as well.
