Flash Security Flaw - Clickjacking

If you can't live without Flash, I have some bad news for your. There's another serious security flaw lurking around.

This problem affects all computers with Flash installed (which represent nearly all of the computers browsing the internet) and allows an attacker to have access to your webcam and microphone with a single click.

This type of attack is known as clickjacking and here a video explaining how it works.
