RealPlayer Skin File Handling Buffer Overflow

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

Description

The remote host is running a version of RealPlayer which is vulnerable to an overflow via a malformed skin file. As skin files are downloaded, typically, without any sort of warning or prompt to the user, the remote attacker need only create a website with a malformed skins file and entice the user to visit the site.

Solution

Upgrade or patch according to vendor recommendations.
