AllVideos v3.3 has just been released, permanently dealing with a security flaw discovered in version 3.0 to 3.2. You are strongly advised to upgrade immediately to v3.3 if you're already using v3.0 to v3.2.

The vulnerability discovered in versions 3.0. to 3.2 of the plugin can be exploited by malicious people to disclose potentially sensitive information. For security reasons we will not be providing further details to safeguard users of affected versions.

If you are using AllVideos v1.x or v2.x there is no security concern to upgrade. You are however advised to upgrade to v3.3 if using Joomla! 1.5 to enjoy all the new features introduced in the v3 series.
