View Full Version : A question regarding Flash security?

06-11-2001, 12:28 PM
I found this in one of the tutorials:

home / tutorials / Actionscript library

Writing txt files to your hard drive
on (release) {
fscommand ("exec", "command.com\t/c\techo\ttxtInput\t>>writeFile.txt");

If I can call commands (command.com in this case) like this, isn't it possible for someone to implement deltree or format and cause damage to users PC.

Dear Sir,

I asked that question not 'coz I want to do it. I wanted to ask if it was possible and if yes what features Flash has to prevent its misuse.
