A vulnerability exists when handling RealText that can result in a heap overflow.
Comment 1 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-06-24 01:18:15 UTC
Upgrade to realplayer-10.0.5 and helixplayer-1.0.5 is necessary.
Comment 2 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-06-24 04:22:46 UTC
It doesn't seems to be released yet (also if Real's security advisory states 
Comment 3 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-06-24 15:09:29 UTC
Ok committed 1.0.5 and 10.0.5. Little problem: I can't test helixplayer here 
as it's x86-only so I dropped the keywords until someone can test it. 
Comment 4 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-06-24 15:30:46 UTC
Thx Diego, 
x86 please test and mark   
helixplayer-1.0.5 ~x86  
realplayer-10.0.5 x86  
Comment 5 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-06-27 01:19:20 UTC

Comment 6 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-07-05 01:55:32 UTC
x86/someone please test and mark stable ASAP.
