RealPlayer for Windows < Build Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 27591


The remote Windows application is affected by several buffer overflow vulnerabilities.


According to its build number, the installed version of RealPlayer / RealOne Player / RealPlayer Enterprise on the remote Windows host suffers from several buffer overflows involving specially crafted media files (eg, '.mp3', '.rm', '.SMIL', '.swf', '.ram', and '.pls'). If an attacker can trick a user on the affected system into opening such a file or browsing to a specially crafted web page, he may be able to exploit one of these issues to execute arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges on the affected host.


Upgrade to RealPlayer 10.5 build / RealPlayer Enterprise build or later.

Note that the vendor's advisory states that build numbers for RealPlayer 10.5 are not sequential.
