Vulnerability Note VU#698278
RealPlayer version 126.96.36.199 contains a buffer overflow vulnerability
RealPlayer version 188.8.131.52 and possibly earlier versions contain a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability (CWE-121).
CWE-121: Stack-based Buffer Overflow
RealPlayer version 184.108.40.206 and possibly earlier versions contain a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability. The .RMP file format is similar to standard XML encoding. An attacker can place malicious code in the value of the version or the encoding attributes inside the XML declaration to craft a malicious .RMP file. Once the file is opened by the victim, the program may crash or allow execution of code.
A remote unauthenticated attacker may be able to trick a user into opening a malicious .RMP file which may cause a denial-of-service condition or lead to arbitrary code execution.
