Nice. Real nice. On the heels of Microsoft discovering everything they wrote was vulnerable to malicous JPEG images, now it turns out that RealPlayer can be exploited … on any platform.
Yes, even on Mac OS or Linux. (Presumably the exploit would have to be tailored for each system.)
Go to a web page with a malicious video, and you’re screwed.
Fortunately (a) a patch is available and (b) if I have to, I can live without RealPlayer for a while.
Here’s the advisory.
