Unfortunately FlashBlock is useless. I tested it on a malicious swf 
file, and the firefox immediately crashed (I know flashblock does not 
block local flash files. I tested it via a http server.)

But I think that the chances are fairly slim that the linux box be
exploited by this flash vulnerability. I am going to use this flash 
plugin til Adobe provides the new one.
