Adobe Flash Player has Stopped a Potentially Unsafe Operation

Today morning one of my blog's reader send me an email saying he is getting security alerts from adobe when visiting my blog. He said he is getting an error message from adobe saying "Adobe Flash Player has Stopped a Potentially Unsafe Operation" from his computer. To check this issue I opened my browser and got the same message "Adobe Flash Player has Stopped a Potentially Unsafe Operation". It was saying a local application in my computer is trying to communicate with an Internet enabled location " resources.infolinks.com ". Infolinks is an online advertisement company just like Google adsense and they are a genuine company.Only in Google Chrome I face this issue, firefox and Opera are fine with my blog. So I understand it may be some kind of misunderstanding from adobe or Google Chrome and infolinks never host malicious applications in their code. At first I thought it is an issue from Google Chrome but search results showed different reason.


Adobe Flash Player has Stopped a Potentially Unsafe Operation


This issue is due to the policy of adobe flash player which stops some type of communication for the content stored in our computer to prevent any malicious programs to send sensitive user data to unknown sources. We can set the certain communication as trusted by changing the settings.


How to Prevent Adobe Flash Player from stopping the Local content communication


I am not going to write how to do it because we have already a well written document from Adobe itself. If you wish to change settings to do not stop local content communicating from your computer to an Internet based trusted source, follow the steps provided in the adobe tutorial.

Didn't help - everytime it shows up I click "Settings" but can never get the Global Settings box to appear. Very frustrating.

Ohh I too getting this message of Adobe flash player has stopped some potentially unsafe operations or applications. It is really frustrating and I begin to think may be some virus is behind it.
