RealPlayer < 6.0.12.1059 Multiple Remote Overflows

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

Description

The remote host has the RealPlayer software installed.

There are several flaws in the remote version of this software that might allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code and delete arbitrary files on the remote host.

To exploit these flaws, an attacker would need to send a malformed SMIL or WAV file to a user on the remote host and wait for the file to be opened in RealPlayer.

Solution

Upgrade to version 6.0.12.1059 or higher.
