RealPlayer < (Win) Remote Buffer Overflow

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8331


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


Versions of RealPlayer earlier than 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.


Windows users should upgrade to RealPlayer or later.
