    loadvars question

    Level 7
      When you do a sendandload to an asp script which returns an xml document
      into flash, is there a file that is downloaded to the client's hard drive,
      or is it all done in memory into flash?

      Thanks

          Everything occurs in memory.

            Thanks David

            That's what i thought (or hoped!), but we have a client who has manged to
            send us an excel spreadsheet of all the xml we send into flash and they
            think it is a security flaw.

            How would thay manage to save this xml?

            We use response.write in the asp page to send the document tree back to
            flash.

              Well, it is ... if they can do that. ;)

              It's not especially hard if you have the tools and know-how to keep an
              eye on network packets to and from the user's machine. Of course, this
              isn't a Flash flaw, per se ... they could just as easily grab this
              information if the POST had been made from Cold Fusion, ASP, PHP, what have
              you, with no SWF involved.

              You may have to use something like secure sockets
              ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secure_Sockets_Layer), but honestly, I'd be
              stepping out of my expertise in giving you further advice. I'm almost
              exclusively a client-side programmer.
