RealPlayer for Windows Multiple Overflows

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows application is affected by several overflow
vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its build number, the installed version of RealPlayer /
RealOne Player / RealPlayer Enterprise for Windows on the remote host
is affected by multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities.

An attacker may be able to leverage these issues to execute arbitrary
code on the remote host subject to the permissions of the user running
the affected application. Note that a user doesn't necessarily need
to explicitly access a malicious media file since the browser may
automatically pass to the application RealPlayer skin files (ie, files
with the extension '.rjs').
