Package        : helix-player
Vulnerability  : multiple
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CAN-2005-1766 CAN-2005-2710
Debian Bug     : 316276 330364

Multiple security vulnerabilities have been identified in the
helix-player media player that could allow an attacker to execute code
on the victim's machine via specially crafted network resources.

CAN-2005-1766

        Buffer overflow in the RealText parser could allow remote code
        execution via a specially crafted RealMedia file with a long
        RealText string.

CAN-2005-2710

        Format string vulnerability in Real HelixPlayer and RealPlayer 10
        allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via the image
        handle attribute in a RealPix (.rp) or RealText (.rt) file.

For the stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.4-1sarge1

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.6-1

We recommend that you upgrade your helix-player package.
