Hi all -

I have recently had this message pop up in the top left corner of the screen of my Toshiba Satellite laptop -
This has only been in the last 2 days that I recall, and usually when I copy/paste from Text Editor
Speccy = http://speccy.piriform.com/results/uBz4AiMRgg2nulQzQC8voBo

Adobe Flash Player
An ActionScript error has occurred


(The following is in a box below this.)


SecurityError: Error #2060: Security sandbox violation: ExternalInterface caller http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/public/js/3rd_party/swfupload/swfupload.swf?preventswfcaching=1361854301287 cannot access <unknown>.

 at ExternalCall$/Bool()
 at SWFUpload/CheckExternalInterface()
 at MethodInfo-10()
 at flash.utils::Timer/_timerDispatch()
 at flash.utils::Timer/tick()


I am then given the 2 options to Dismiss All or Continue (Note top 2 lines are a single line in this message)

I normally click Dismiss All

Flash Player is updated, as are all Adobe programs


Solutions and reasons are unknown, but I did link B.C. Windows7 Access Safe Mode in 2 instances, example below.


Thank You -

Hi Louis -

Thank you for your interest, I think I had just figured that out by chance.


Yesterday I updated several Adobe items while helping another person.

I also updated my Flash Player and Shockwave when I was checking on their versions -

In fact Secunia PSI had picked something for the last week, and I think this may have been it.


Secunia had been Orange for a while, and now it is Green since I updated these 2 items.

Flash Player is now 11.6.602.171 and Shockwave is now


I have not had the issue since then - As it did not seem to be a Win7 issue, I posted in software -

Thank You for adding this for me -


Regards -
