ESET and Symantec victims of vulnerable JW Player

It seems that there are still many JW Players outdated in the wild.
I reported two security issues, same vulnerability that I published about Yahoo, on ESET and Symantec sites.

The problem is located under a vulnerable flash player (JW Player) that can be used to explore a Cross site flashing - OWASP-DV-004.
This may be used to trick innocent users to spread malware and even hijack accounts using the name of ESET and Symantec.

#1 Proof-of-concept on ESET:"xss by @dsopas")

#2 Proof-of-concept on Symantec:"xss by @dsopas");

Both issues were fixed (JW Player removed) by the vendors.

Timeline #1:
18 Jun 2013: Reported to ESET
03 Jul 2013: Fixed by ESET
16 Aug 2013: Full disclosure

Timeline #2:
19 Jun 2013: Reported to Symantec
20 Jun 2013: I noticed that the script was removed. Never got a reply back.
16 Aug 2013: Full disclosure
