Flash Question: Banner links back to my site

I have created a flash banner for another site (site x) that links back to my site.  I am using AS 3.0.  I keep getting an error that the flash banner is trying to do an unsafe operation, meaning it is not allowing the link from site x come back to my site.  

Is this error a function of the version of AS I am using or a function of the newer Flash players?  I have found a fix involving crossdomain.xml, but am concerned about the security issues, etc.  If AS2.0 would be an easier fix, should I go that route, or use the crossdomain.xml?

Many thanks!

What code are you using to navigate to the site?

You might want to use navigateToURL() and see if that solves the issue

Do you have a link to the site that is having the issues?

Actionscript 2 should still have the same issue, you're only fix will likely be to have a crossdomain.xml on your server. Have a look at http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashplayer/articles/cross_domain_policy.html for more information about them.
And just to mention, if you are using AS3, you might want to stay with it. Don't switch to AS2 unless you absolutely NEED to.
