The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
Multiple security flaws were discovered in RealPlayer. Helix Player
and RealPlayer share a common source code base
therefore, some of the
flaws discovered in RealPlayer may also affect Helix Player. Some of
these flaws could, when opening, viewing, or playing a malicious media
file or stream, lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges
of the user running Helix Player. (CVE-2010-2997, CVE-2010-4375,
CVE-2010-4378, CVE-2010-4379, CVE-2010-4382, CVE-2010-4383,
CVE-2010-4384, CVE-2010-4385, CVE-2010-4386, CVE-2010-4392)
Our removal packages have nothing in them but a README, so the
HelixPlayer program will be removed from your SL 4 machine, but you
will still have a package called HelixPlayer.
Note: Just to be clear. You will still have a package called
HelixPlayer on your machine, but there will not be any program in it.
It will be an empty rpm.
