The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


RealPlayer 10 is vulnerable to a critical security problem in the flash plugin (CVE-2007-5400). Real does not provide updated binaries of RealPlayer 10 and SUSE is not allowed to ship RealPlayer 11.
Therefore this update disables the flash plugin by setting restrictive file system permissions.


Update the affected RealPlayer package.
