(Red Hat Issues Fix) RealPlayer Buffer Overflows Let Remote Users Execute Arbitrary Code
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1023578
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1023578
CVE Reference:   CVE-2009-4242, CVE-2009-4245, CVE-2009-4247, CVE-2009-4248, CVE-2009-4257   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Feb 10 2010
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 10.x, 11.x
Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in RealPlayer. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system.

A remote user can create specially crafted media content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

A specially crafted ASM RuleBook can trigger a heap overflow [CVE-2009-4241].

A specially crafted GIF file can trigger a heap overflow [CVE-2009-4242].

Media with specially crafted HTTP chunk encoding can trigger code execution [CVE-2009-4243].

A specially crafted media file can trigger a heap overflow in the SIPR Code [CVE-2009-4244].

A specially crafted compressed GIF file can trigger a heap overflow [CVE-2009-4245].

A specially crafted skin file can trigger a stack overflow [CVE-2009-4246].

A specially crafted ASM RuleBook can trigger an overflow [CVE-2009-4247].

A specially crafted RTSP set_parameter value can trigger a buffer overflow [CVE-2009-4248].

A specially crafted SMIL file can trigger a heap overflow [CVE-2009-4257].

Evgeny Legerov, anonymous researchers via iDEFENSE Labs, and John Rambo and anonymous researchers via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative reported these vulnerabilities.

Impact:   A remote user can create media content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.
Solution:   Red Hat has issued a fix for CVE-2009-4242, CVE-2009-4245, CVE-2009-4247, CVE-2009-4248, and CVE-2009-4257.

=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An updated HelixPlayer package that fixes several security issues is now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

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

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ppc, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

HelixPlayer is a media player.

Multiple buffer and integer overflow flaws were found in the way
HelixPlayer processed Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) files. An attacker
could create a specially-crafted GIF file which would cause HelixPlayer to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-4242,
CVE-2009-4245)

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way HelixPlayer processed
Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) files. An attacker
could create a specially-crafted SMIL file which would cause HelixPlayer to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-4257)

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way HelixPlayer handled the Real
Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) SET_PARAMETER directive. A malicious RTSP
server could use this flaw to crash HelixPlayer or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2009-4248)

Multiple buffer overflow flaws were discovered in the way HelixPlayer
handled RuleBook structures in media files and RTSP streams.
Specially-crafted input could cause HelixPlayer to crash or, potentially,
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2009-4247, CVE-2010-0417)

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way HelixPlayer performed URL
un-escaping. A specially-crafted URL string could cause HelixPlayer to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-0416)

All HelixPlayer users are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which contains backported patches to resolve these issues. All running
instances of HelixPlayer must be restarted for this update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
