Just played with custom encoded adobe_flashplayer_newfunction PDF exploit, and find that Kaspersky AV dont allow specific operation with SWF file which included in exploit (seems don't allow write operation), I still can open PDF file, KAV does not delete file and doesn't flag it as virus.
Is it possible to encode SWF itself?
