-- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable installations of RealNetworks RealPlayer. Authentication is
not required to exploit this vulnerability.
The specific flaw exists within the drv1.dll module. Code responsible
for parsing SIPR stream metadata trusts frame width and height values
from the input file. By crafting particular values an integer value used
in a loop can be made to wrap negatively. The loop will subsequently
overflow a static heap buffer during an inline memory copy. By crafting
a malicious .rm file an attacker can exploit this vulnerability remotely
using the RealPlayer ActiveX control.
-- Vendor Response:
RealNetworks has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More
