Is z.cdn.turner.com malware? Should I "Accept" or "Deny" it ? See the name in the small "Adobe Flash Player Settings" box on top of the video at this link (tried to insert screenshot but it didn't work): http://www.cnn.com/video/?/video/living/2013/05/17/orig-jtb-distractio n-disco-bird.youtube#/video/living/2013/04/29/orig-jtb-distraction-fr o zen-corgi-pandas.youtube. I have Flash Player 11.7.700.202, and am using Windows XP and IE 8.
Sorry, the correct link is http://www.cnn.com/video/?/video/living/2013/05/17/orig-jtb-distractio n-disco-bird.youtube.
That most likely means that you have your Flash Player's Global Privacy Settings set to "always ask." You can confirm by visiting this page -- http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/se ttings_manager02.html
That little box on the page is a settings manager that allows you to set or modify how Flash Player deals with material that websites what to store on your PC.
As for the CNN video, I went to the link but couldn't get any of them to play. (I have all of my Flash Player security settings set to always deny and never store anything on my PC, so that may have something to do with it.)
I noticed, however, that just below the title of each video was a link to the video on youtube --
Click on that and you'll be taken to the video on its original youtube page, which CNN got it from. That should give you no problems, or concerns about security breaches.
