RealNetworks RealPlayer IVR filename length buffer overflow
|realplayer-ivr-filename-bo (48567)||High Risk|
RealNetworks RealPlayer is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking of filename lengths when processing Internet Video Recording (IVR) files. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted IVR file, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
