=====================================================================
                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Critical: RealPlayer security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2008:0812-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux Extras
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2008-0812.html
Issue date:        2008-07-31
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

RealPlayer 10.0.9 as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Extras, 4
Extras, and 5 Supplementary, contains a security flaw and should not be
used.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Description:

RealPlayer is a media player that provides media playback locally and via
streaming.

RealPlayer 10.0.9 is vulnerable to a critical security flaw and should no
longer be used. A remote attacker could leverage this flaw to execute
arbitrary code as the user running RealPlayer. (CVE-2007-5400)

This issue is addressed in RealPlayer 11. Red Hat is unable to ship
RealPlayer 11 due to additional proprietary codecs included in that
version. Therefore, users who wish to continue to use RealPlayer should get
an update directly from www.real.com.

RealPlayer 10.0.9 packages will remain available via Red Hat Network for
those who choose to use them, despite their known security vulnerabilities.

3. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  Details on how to use
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/FAQ_58_10188

4. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

456855 - CVE-2007-5400 RealPlayer: SWF Frame Handling Buffer Overflow
