[vlc-devel] libvlc_media_option_trusted and security

Hi all,

I added this option libvlc_media_option_trusted to the following in

libvlc_media_add_option_flag(media, optv[i], libvlc_media_option_unique|

I added this so that I could record from the web plugin.  My understanding
is that this was removed due to security issues.

My question is were these vulnerabilities of the implementation of this
flag and methods or simply that any time you give a web plug-in R/W access
to disk you have a security issue?
