TITLE:
RealOne Player / RealPlayer Multiple Vulnerabilities

SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
SA10796

VERIFY ADVISORY:
http://www.secunia.com/advisories/10796/

CRITICAL:
Highly critical

IMPACT:
Cross Site Scripting, System access

WHERE:
- From remote

SOFTWARE:
RealPlayer 10
RealOne Player v2
RealOne Player v1
RealOne Enterprise Desktop
RealPlayer 8

DESCRIPTION:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in RealOne Player and
RealPlayer, where the most serious potentially can be exploited by
malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

Boundary errors when parsing ".RP", ".RT", ".RAM", ".RPM", and
".SMIL" files can be exploited to cause buffer overflows via
specially crafted files (e.g. hosted on a malicious web site).
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code on a
user's system.

An unspecified error in the handling of ".RMP" files can be exploited
to download and execute arbitrary code on a user's system.

An input validation error in the handling of ".SMIL" and other files
can be exploited to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The following products are affected:
* RealPlayer 8
* RealPlayer 10 Beta
* RealOne Player
* RealOne Player v2
* RealOne Enterprise Desktop / RealPlayer Enterprise (all language
versions, all platforms)

SOLUTION:
The vendor has issued patches, which can be applied via the "Check
for Update" feature.
