Description Josh Bressers 2005-06-08 14:39:44 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #159864 +++

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.

This issue also affects HelixPlayer
