Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated RealPlayer package that fixes a buffer overflow issue is now
available.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

RealPlayer is a media player that provides solid media playback locally and
via streaming. It plays RealAudio, RealVideo, MP3, 3GPP Video, Flash, SMIL
2.0, JPEG, GIF, PNG, RealPix, RealText, and more.

A buffer overflow bug was found in the way RealPlayer processes SMIL files.
A possible hacker could create a specially crafted SMIL file, which when combined
with a malicious Web server, could execute arbitrary code when opened by a
user. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2005-1766 to this issue.

All users of RealPlayer are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which contains RealPlayer version 10.0.5 and is not vulnerable to this
issue.
