Security issues

This could be a “trojan”, like any program, yes, but it isn't.
As to viruses: Macintosh users need not be concerned, there are still (nearly) none for that platform. For Windows, I can state that I personally compiled this progam (using Flash CS4 on a Mac) with no malicious code and placed it on this site myself.

To store the settings, FrACT uses Flash's “Local Shared Objects”, putting a file containing settings and temporary run results on your computer. Visit the Adobe Flash online settings manager to restrict how Flash stores these files; you can completely disallow such files to be saved, but then your settings won't stick.

Footnote on security warnings

FrACT is free, so I’m not paying developer fees (99$ per year on the Mac platform). Consequently, I can't “sign” the FrACT application, and it will be considered as an “application from an unidentified developer” by the “Gatekeeper” on a Mac or as “publisher unknown” on Windows. More in Apple's →Open an app from an unidentified developer help article.


 

 

Solution (only needed once):

 

If anyone has ideas how to make this easier on any platform, I would warmly welcome all advice.
