    Interesting.

    "The tool essentially parses the entire SWF file that's encountered by the browser, drops the original file and loads the parsed code into a new, safe SWF file.",it is an amazing strategy.

    I think Blitzableiter can already be used in NoScript:

    It's too early to tell, but if you're right and it causes Flash to have even more stability issues for browsers than it already does, I'll pass. I've got Sandboxie for these sorts of attacks.

    i use ad muncher and in special cases proxomitron to filter flash - or the
    flash-button for firefox to turn complete off. but all changes sometime.
    best weapon is an actual flash plugin - i am not frightened.
    all those re-active tools slow down - whats not present cant slow down ;)
