Description Josh Bressers 2005-06-08 14:10:58 EDT
This vulnerability involved a complex interaction between a maliciously created
SMIL file and specifically crafted web server caused a heap overflow in the
error message processing for RealText which could have allowed an attacker to
execute arbitrary code on a customer's machine.

Can we get some packages built ASAP, this is a critical issue and we want to be
ready on day 0.

Additionally, I have a bug 159868 for RHEL3, I don't know if the RHEL4 binaries
will work properly.
