An updated HelixPlayer package that fixes a buffer overflow flaw is now
This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.
HelixPlayer is a media player.
A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way HelixPlayer processed
Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) files. It was possible
for a malformed SMIL file to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of
the user running HelixPlayer. (CVE-2007-3410)
All users of HelixPlayer are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which contains a backported patch and is not vulnerable to this issue.
