What can I do for " SWF security " ? How can i scramble swf data so that no decompiler can break it. Is there " any other way "  to secure swfs online ??

Is the scrambling / encrypting method secure ?

no. by definition, if the swf applet for the browser can descramble it to display it, a decompiler can descramble it to edit...

Exactly. To display the swf the browser has to be able to read it. If the browser can't read it, it won't be displayed. Same with HTML, people write scramblers/obfuscators that make it look tough to decompile, but they render in the browser just fine, so all you have to do is use an alternate tool or some minor reverse engineering to take the code apart.
