But here is what I know thus far:

1) There is a XSS vulnerability in MySpace.com, in the form of an

2) The XSS worm is propagating via malicious .swf Flash files, using
ActionScript and Cross-Domain data loading.
3) Thanks to the XSS, and http://www.myspace.com/crossdomain.xml (note
specifically: allow-access-from domain="*"/) the worm hit many users
across MySpace.
