RealPlayer < 17.0.10.8 (Win) Remote Buffer Overflow

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8331

Synopsis

The remote host is running a version of RealPlayer multimedia application that may be vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

Description

Versions of RealPlayer earlier than 17.0.10.8 on Windows are potentially affected by an overflow condition due to insufficient user input validation when handling index types or media sample sizes. A context-dependent attacker can leverage this with a specially crafted MP4 file to cause the application to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code.

Solution

Windows users should upgrade to RealPlayer 17.0.10.8 or later.
