I am confused. This says that the vulnerability was from a bundled version of swfupload and is confirmed in 1.9.7. But the changelog for the plugin states: "V1.9.7 - 11.13.2012

Secured: Removed bundled version of swfupload; using WordPress-bundled version instead for WordPress 3.2 instances" (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/nextgen-galler...)

That seems to say that version 1.9.7 no longer uses the insecure version of the script. ???
