This may allow the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials and launch other attacks. SWFUpload version 188.8.131.52 is vulnerable; prior versions may also be affected.
SWFUpload applet is installed on a large number of applications. The fix is different on each affected application. Please consult the application vendor for information on how to fix this vulnerability.
