RealPlayer 3GP/3G2 File Handling Memory Corruption
No patch available.
RealPlayer 184.108.40.206 and earlier
A vulnerability exists within RealPlayer that can cause a write access violation, which may be exploited to gain arbitrary remote code execution within the context of the currently logged-on user. RealPlayer mishandles specially crafted 3GP and 3G2 files which subsequently causes an access violation within dmp4.dll. An attacker, if successful, may use this issue to gain arbitrary code execution.
Remote Code Execution
Exploitation of this vulnerability is possible through the use of methods like drive-by attacks. Remote attackers who successfully exploit this vulnerability will be able to execute code on the vulnerable system with the same rights as the currently logged on user.
Do not open untrustworthy 3GP and 3G2 files with RealPlayer.
