Elazar Broad has discovered a vulnerability in RealPlayer, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to an error within the RealPlayer ActiveX Control (rmoc3260.dll) when handling the "Console" property. This can be exploited to cause a memory corruption and execute arbitrary code when a user e.g. is tricked into visiting a malicious website.
The vulnerability is confirmed in RealPlayer version 11.0.1 (build 18.104.22.1684) including rmoc3260.dll version 22.214.171.124. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 11.0.2 (build 126.96.36.1992) via e.g. "Check for Update" in the "Help->About RealPlayer" menu.
