The 0.6.8 announcement > looks like it at least fixes several Denial of Service problems: [...] I have problems to understand why this would be a Denial of Service. While I don't share the opinion about browser crashes I think there are at least good arguments for both sides. But if swfdec crashes on playing a flash movie this looks like an application bug. At least I wouldn't talk about Denial of Service if vim would crash on opening a text file. It would be interesting what is causing this crash and if there is underlying a more serious issue.
