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

    If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
    sources.list as given below:
