    Vulnerability  : multiple

    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.

    Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 alias sarge
    - --------------------------------
    
    helix-player was distributed only on the i386 and powerpc architecures
    
      Source archives:
