RealPlayer < 6.0.12.1212 vidplin.dll Crafted AVI Overflow

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3030

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

Description

The remote Windows host has RealPlayer software installed. There is a flaw in this version of the software that would allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to convince a user to download and play a malicious media file. Upon execution, a local content-parsing bug would be triggered, enabling a local heap overflow and code execution.

Solution

Upgrade to version 6.0.12.1212 or higher.
