Flash "Protect from import" Flag Override

Hehe I found a way to import a movie that is exported with the "Protect from import" checkbox checked. It involves a very simple Hex-Edit.
Here's how to:
Make a backup of the .swf.
Grab a Hex-Editor (such as UltraEdit32) and open the .swf you can('t) import. Now you must delete the 53 'til 56 byte if good, they will be 00 06. Save and exit. Then try to import the .swf again. Voila !
