RealPlayer for Windows Multiple Vulnerabilities (2)

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for multiple vulnerabilities in RealPlayer for Windows (2)

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote Windows application is affected by several overflow
vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its version number, the installed version of RealPlayer /
RealOne Player / RealPlayer Enterprise for Windows on the remote host
is prone to buffer overflow and heap overflow vulnerabilities. An
attacker may be able to leverage these issues to execute arbitrary
code on the remote host subject to the permissions of the user running
the affected application. Note that a user doesn't necessarily need
to explicitly access a malicious media file since the browser may
automatically pass to the application RealPlayer skin files (ie, files
with the extension '.rjs').
