|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: RealPlayer: Buffer overflow vulnerability (GLSA 200603-24)
Date: March 26, 2006
RealPlayer is vulnerable to a buffer overflow that could lead to remote execution of arbitrary code.
RealPlayer is a multimedia player capable of handling multiple multimedia file formats.
Vulnerable: < 10.0.7
Unaffected: >= 10.0.7
Architectures: All supported architectures
RealPlayer is vulnerable to a buffer overflow when processing malicious SWF files.
By enticing a user to open a specially crafted SWF file an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All RealPlayer users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-video/realplayer-10.0.7"
