1. Summary:

RealPlayer 10.0.9 as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Extras, 4
Extras, and 5 Supplementary, contains a security flaw and should not be

3. Description:

RealPlayer is a media player that provides media playback locally and via
streaming.

RealPlayer 10.0.9 is vulnerable to a critical security flaw and should no
longer be used. A remote attacker could leverage this flaw to execute
arbitrary code as the user running RealPlayer. (CVE-2007-5400)

This issue is addressed in RealPlayer 11. Red Hat is unable to ship
RealPlayer 11 due to additional proprietary codecs included in that
version. Therefore, users who wish to continue to use RealPlayer should get
an update directly from www.real.com.

This update removes the RealPlayer 10.0.9 packages due to their known
security vulnerabilities.

4. Solution:

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

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  Details on how to use
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
