    Update Information:
    
    Updated HelixPlayer packages that fixes two buffer overflow issues are
    now
    available.
    
    This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red
    Hat Security Response Team.
    
    A stack based buffer overflow bug was found in HelixPlayer's
    Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) file processor. An
    attacker could create a specially crafted SMIL file which would execute
    arbitrary code when opened by a user. The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0455 to
    this issue.
    
    A buffer overflow bug was found in the way HelixPlayer decodes WAV
    files. An attacker could create a specially crafted WAV file which could
    execute arbitrary code when opened by a user. The Common Vulnerabilities
    and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
    CAN-2005-0611 to this issue.
    
    All users of HelixPlayer are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
    which contains HelixPlayer 1.0.3 which is not vulnerable to these
    issues.
