Description

An updated HelixPlayer package that fixes a buffer overflow issue is now available.

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

HelixPlayer is a media player.

A buffer overflow bug was found in the way HelixPlayer processes SMIL files. An attacker could create a specially crafted SMIL file, which when combined with a malicious web server, could execute arbitrary code when opened by a user. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-1766 to this issue.

All users of HelixPlayer are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains HelixPlayer version 10.0.5 and is not vulnerable to this issue.
