(RealNetworks has recommended that users of its RealOne Player and RealPlayer softwares upgrade in order to avoid a high severity flaw that could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. The two media players are the most widely used softwares for Internet media delivery, with over 200 million users worldwide. The flaw lies in a core RealPlayer component, making all versions vulnerable, whether the free version for home users or the Enterprise edition. A malformed .ra, .rm, .rv, or .rmj file can be delivered through malicious weblinks or e-mail to corrupt the heap and execute code with the security privileges of the logged-on user.)
