PART I Critical Vulnerabilities

Part I for this issue has been compiled by Josh Bronson at TippingPoint,
a division of HP, as a by-product of that company’s continuous effort
to ensure that its intrusion prevention products effectively block
exploits using known vulnerabilities. TippingPoint’s analysis is
complemented by input from a council of security managers from twelve
large organizations who confidentially share with SANS the specific
actions they have taken to protect their systems. A detailed description
of the process may be found at
http://www.sans.org/newsletters/risk/#process


(1) MEDIUM: RealNetworks RealPlayer Multiple Security Vulnerabilities

Affected:
RealPlayer 11.0 - 11.1
RealPlayer SP 1.0 - 1.1.5
RealPlayer 14.0.0 - 14.0.7
Mac RealPlayer 12.0.0.1701

Description: RealNetworks has released patches for multiple
vulnerabilities affecting its RealPlayer media player. The issues
include unspecified vulnerabilities dealing with a variety of formats.
Many of the vulnerabilities were reported through the Zero Day
Initiative, which tests to ensure that they can be used for code
execution. It is likely, then, that by enticing a target to open a
malicious file, an attacker could exploit many of these vulnerabilities
in order to execute arbitrary code on the target’s machine.

Status: vendor confirmed, updates available
