(Red Hat Issues Fix) RealPlayer Enterprise MP3, RAM, RealText and AVI Processing Bugs Let Remote Users Execute Arbitrary Code
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1014389
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1014389
CVE Reference:   CVE-2005-1766   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jul 5 2005
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of system information, Modification of user information, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  

Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in RealPlayer Enterprise. A remote user can execute arbitrary code or create files on the target user's system.

A remote user can create a specially crafted MP3 or RAM file that, when loaded by the target user, will overwrite local files or invoke an ActiveX control on the target user's system.

A remote user can create a RealMedia file containing specially crafted RealText that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a heap overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.

A remote user can create a specially crafted AVI file to trigger a buffer overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.

A remote user can create HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will create an HTML file on the target user's system and then invoke a RM file to reference the local HTML file.

The vendor credits John Heasman of NGS Software, iDEFENSE Labs, and eEye Digital Security with reporting these vulnerabilities.

Impact:   A remote user can execute arbitrary code on the target user's system with the privileges of the target user.

A remote user can create files on the target user's system.

Solution:   Red Hat has released a fix for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Extras.

1. Summary:

An updated RealPlayer 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.

[Updated 05 Jul 2005]

proper fix for this issue.  This erratum has been updated with a replacement
package that corrects this issue

3. Problem description:

RealPlayer is a media player that provides media playback locally and
via streaming. It plays RealAudio, RealVideo, MP3, 3GPP Video, Flash, SMIL
2.0, JPEG, GIF, PNG, RealPix, RealText, and more.

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

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

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
