    External Interface and Apple OS X Security Updates since 28 July 2010

    Lukas Bradley

      Ever since the OS X and Safari updates from 28 July onward, we have been unable to send data from Flash player to Javascript and out to Unity 3D.  From the alert() statements I have made, it appears as if the communication is being blocked at the Flash level.  In other words, the browser is either no longer accepting the external interface calls from Flash, or Flash is blocking them internally.  Calls from the browser to Flash are still functional.


      The Flash version number is on both old (non updated machines) and newly updated (doesn't work).  Our application works on Windows fine.  On OS X systems that have not had the updates, it also works fine.


      We purchased a new iMac tonight to test and the communication works fine:


      Mac OS X 10.6.3

      Safari 4.0.5 (6531.22.7)


      On another machine the system worked fine a week ago:


      Mac OS X 10.6.4

      Safari 5.0 (6533.16)


      After the update to the following, it does not work:


      Mac OS X 10.6.4

      Safari 5.0.1 (6533.17.8)


      Anyone experiencing anything like this?  Anyone experiencing ANY trouble with Flash and those updates?


      Any and all information will help.
