    Flash has always had vulnerabilitys, this is nothing new. And people exploiting this vulnerability would be unlikely to target the iPhone OS because it has such a small user base, they would go for Windows.

    You also would have been fine leaving the DLL you deleted, you would only be infected if you visited a malicious site.
