I wonder how serious the security threat is. Since the warning, I
installed Flashblock plugin for firefox but stopped using it after a
while. I just can't take the warning seriously enough.

* Security Advisory for Flash Player, Adobe Reader and Acrobat:

| This vulnerability (CVE-2010-1297) could cause a crash and
| potentially allow an attacker to take control of the affected
| system.

I don't mind a crash. But I do not want "an attacker to take control"
of my machine. However, I'd take the risk if the "potential" is
sufficiently low.  and I'm betting on it now.
