[DSA826] DSA-826-1 helix-player

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-826-1 helix-player

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Multiple security vulnerabilities have been identified in the
helix-player media player that could permit a possible hacker to execute code
on the victim's machine via specially crafted network resources.
Buffer overflow in the RealText parser could permit remote code
execution via a specially crafted RealMedia file with a long
RealText string.
Format string vulnerability in Real HelixPlayer and RealPlayer 10
permits remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via the image
handle attribute in a RealPix (.rp) or RealText (.rt) file.
For the stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.4-1sarge1
For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.6-1
We recommend that you upgrade your helix-player package.
helix-player was distributed only on the i386 and powerpc architectures
