RealNetworks RealPlayer Version Attribute Buffer Overflow

This module exploits a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability in version 16.0.3.51 and 16.0.2.32 of RealNetworks RealPlayer, caused by improper bounds checking of the version and encoding attributes inside the XML declaration. By persuading the victim to open a specially-crafted .RMP file, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
