Description Josh Bressers 2005-06-08 14:42:52 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #159871 +++

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
Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2005-06-08 14:45:42 EDT
This issue will have to be fixed in FC4 as well.
Comment 2 John (J5) Palmieri 2005-06-10 13:04:43 EDT
RHEL-4 built and symlinked
Comment 3 John (J5) Palmieri 2005-06-13 14:12:10 EDT
FC-3 & 4 build.  I will have Colin push these as I will be away when the embargo
is lifted.
