I think this should be a regular bug until have assurance the report segfault can be attributed to Gnash.

The SWF from this report is no longer available (http://christianchat.com/cc20120312b.swf). Does anyone have a copy? If so, please attach it.

I am no longer getting a segfault, that was related to lightspark. I am however still getting the original bug which you are mentioning "Stop scripts" prompt when visiting the page.

So at least this is no longer a security issue. :)

8394:1] 1821 ERROR: Undefined GetUrl2 URL on stack, skipping
8394:1] 3028 ERROR: get URL: target background is not a sprite
8394:3] 3853 ERROR: HTTP response 404 from URL http://christianchat.com/voicechatpics/privatechatpop.jpg?777

Then enters a loop which triggers a "stop scripts?" popup.

So, no segfault for me, with the launcher.
Luke: what segfaulted ? Maybe the browser ?

Can you give the exact URL of the website triggering the error ?

tagging this ticket as "Security" severity due to the segfault (unconfirmed)

This is re-post from downstream Lightspark bug #97123814.
"The file is SWF version 6, you manage to get it to load the initial booting sequence followed by glitching and then crashing of the plugin. If you run the swf by itself (not using browser plugin) it catches a segfault.

Attached is debug log of the browser plugin which at least loads part of the GUI."
You may see the debug here -
Test case is easy, just visit ChristianChat.com.
