SUSE-SA:2006:018: RealPlayer

High Nessus Plugin ID 21150


The remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch


The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2006:018 (RealPlayer).

This update fixes the following security problems in Realplayer:

- Specially crafted SWF files could cause a buffer overflow and crash RealPlayer (CVE-2006-0323).

- Specially crafted web sites could cause heap overflow and lead to executing arbitrary code (CVE-2005-2922). This was already fixed with the previously released 1.0.6 version, but not announced on request of Real.

The advisory for these problems is on this page at Real:

SUSE Linux 9.2 up to 10.0 and Novell Linux Desktop 9 are affected by this problem and receive fixed packages.

If you are still using Realplayer on SUSE Linux 9.1 or SUSE Linux Desktop 1, we again wish to remind you that the Real player on these products cannot be updated and recommend to deinstall it.
