Description


Several vulnerabilities have been reported in RealOne Player, RealPlayer, Helix Player and Rhapsody, which can be exploited by malicious people to overwrite local files or to compromise a user's system.

1) An unspecified error can be exploited to overwrite local files or to execute an ActiveX control on a user's system via a specially crafted MP3 file.

2) A boundary error in the "CRealTextFileFormat::ReadDone()" function when processing RealText streams can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted RealMedia file.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

3) A boundary error in the processing of AVI movie files can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted AVI movie file.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

4) An unspecified error can be exploited by a malicious web site to create a local HTML file on the user's system and then trigger a RM file that references this local HTML file.

Successful exploitation requires that a user opens a malicious MP3, RealMedia or AVI file, or visits a malicious web site that causes the user's browser to automatically load the malicious file.

The following products are affected by some or all of the vulnerabilities:
* RealPlayer 10.5 (6.0.12.1040-1069)
