I'd say that SWFScan is a good decompiler (finally for free) for AS3
- It seems has some issue in decompiling non Flex compiled ActionScript
  2/3 (Example http://www.aflax.org/aflax.zip ) so it's better 
  continue using flare when possible.
- About the "static analysis" feature of SWFScan, it's not perfect as 
  every static analysis tool, so the best is doing it by hand.
  (Example: http://www.longtailvideo.com/players/jw-flv-player/)
  is not alerted..(too complex!)

as a side note, it seems HP is a bit wayward in giving credits about the
underlying theory in Flash issues...but everyone knows, it's quite
common ;)

@Matteo G.P. Flora:
No it's different!... the one from HP has 9 little neurons,
ours has an unnumerable continuous space of Real Number of them :P

Minded Security is soo ahead that we choose a so nice logo that also in
the past everyone copied us! :P
