Secunia Advisory SA27620

Where:

From remote

Impact:

Exposure of sensitive information, System access

Solution Status:

Partial Fix

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Some vulnerabilities have been reported in RealPlayer, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to disclose certain information or compromise a user's system.

1) An error in the rmoc3260 ActiveX control when handling the "Controls", "Console", or "WindowName" properties with a specific timing can be exploited to cause a memory corruption.

This is reportedly similar to:
SA29315

2) An unspecified error can be exploited to reference local resources.

3) A design error within the handling of frames in Shockwave Flash (SWF) files can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow.

4) A boundary error in rjbdll.dll can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow by importing a media library file using an ActiveX control and deleting the imported file.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities allow execution of arbitrary code.

The following products are affected by one or all vulnerabilities (see vendor's advisory for details):
* RealPlayer 11 (11.0.0 - 11.0.2 builds 6.0.14.738 - 6.0.14.802)

* RealPlayer Enterprise
* Mac RealPlayer 10.1 (10.0.0.396 - 10.0.0.503)
* Mac RealPlayer 10 (10.0.0.305 - 352)
