Description Josh Bressers 2005-04-19 16:50:33 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #153931 +++

We have been informed of a buffer overflow issue in the version of HelixPlayer
we ship.  A malicious RAM file can overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code
on a victims machine.
Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2005-04-19 16:52:35 EDT
There's no update on the Helix site for this, and I see nothing the the Helix
CVS to patch this, we're just screwed for now until we have something to update
the packages.

Updated helix source is here:
