Shockwave security hole: It's worse than you think

The Shockwave security leak (as mentioned here last time) appears to be more dangerous than first thought. The "webcomics" page that first reported it now says: "Shockwave has access to any local file on the users hard drive" not just certain email files. On the plus side, the site also reports that all three potential Shockwave security holes "are fixed with a pre-release version of Streaming Shockwave." They further state: "Information in your email, on your hard drive or on your corporate intranet could all be copied to a distant server. All three have been verified by Macromedia, and they are preparing a fix for Shockwave 5." (Thanks also to Daniel Knight and MacInTouch.)
