On Animated love:

That's nice work Martin - although I'm surprised you opted to remove the frame manually rather than write a Basic hack to process the image. I recently helped my wife with an animation for Chinese New Year. It's Flash 8, so not viewable on RISC OS, unfortunately, but here is a link : [link]

On ARM 'security hole' is ofla cousin:

If I've got this straight, an attacker would have to find a specific bug in the device's programs: - a null pointer under reproducible conditions - before a STM, or better still, a looping store - and where arbitrary data can be inserted And then be able to force a reset or execute some other vector.

And for it to work the device mustn't: allow writes to zero page, or use ROM directly (or flash-ROM which isn't directly writable), or put its vector table elsewhere.

I'd have thought finding other security bugs might be easier.
