A flaw was found in the way Flash Player handled the asfunction: protocol. Malformed SWF files could perform a cross-site scripting attack. (CVE-2007-6244)

A flaw was found in the way Flash Player modified HTTP request headers. Malicious content could allow Flash Player to conduct a HTTP response splitting attack. (CVE-2007-6245)

A flaw was found in the way Flash Player processes certain SWF content. A malicious SWF file could allow a remote attacker to conduct a port scanning attack from the client's machine. (CVE-2007-4324)
