SuSE 10 Security Update : Realplayer and banshee (ZYPP Patch Number 7122)

High Nessus Plugin ID 51689


The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.


The security support of Real Player 10 was discontinued a while ago by Real Networks.

As there are known critical security problems in Real Player 10 and we are unable to fix them nor update to Real Player 11, we are disabling this player.

The media player of SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10, Helix Banshee, has been switched to use the Fluendo GSTreamer MP3 codec included in this update to keep MP3 playing abilities.


Apply ZYPP patch number 7122.
