Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 159864
CAN-2005-1766 RealPlayer heap overflow
Last modified: 2013-03-13 00:48:22 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.
Built and symlinked in dist-4E-lacd-errata-candidate
