    Hi,


    Using SWF creatives with dynamic content like product feed data and tracking beacons within the animation, requires class/methods: URLLoader, URLRequest, URLRequestMethod


    The ad complies with all common specs for swf ads.


    However, appnexus and rightmedia reject the ads with reason "malicious code in swf".
    Support does not provide any details.


    Is there a inofficial guide or recommendation for passing the swf approval process with these ad services? I am very sure that the swf does not contain malicious code and works as expected and tracking without issues. But still suffering with these 2 providers' approval process.


    Thanks for help

    yes, doubleclick and openx usually accept. it's no malicious code inside. only loading additional visibility/viewtime tracking + product feed XML with 3 img + click target URLs.

    each click uses clickTAG and the visibility/viewtime tracking doesn't use any ExternalInterface or critical features.

    however, too bad, that appnexus and rightmedia fail in approving the swf.

    do you have alternative recommendation or tips, better/larger adnetworks that have a better ad checker with less false alerts?

    maybe i guess wrong, but after further tests, seems like appnexus has the most stupid ad checker ever seen. rejecting any add with as2/3 by default...

    Who are you buying through? The issue is the approval process is really more dependent on that than anything else. If you have the right account going through the right partners they won't even check your ads.
