What I meant is: how can a user be assured that that FLA, as binary
file, won't harm their system or contain a trojan or something like
that. Any developer who knows the language can check such things on
source code, whereas it's much harder for binaries - so how about that
particular file?

(again, I'm clueless about the FLA format - if someone can tell me
that such files cannot possibly contain bad stuff I'm fine with that).
