Technical Details:
HelixPlayer is a media player. Multiple buffer and integer overflow flaws were found in the way HelixPlayer processed Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) files. An attacker could create a specially-crafted GIF file which would cause HelixPlayer to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-4242, CVE-2009-4245) A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way HelixPlayer processed Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) files. An attacker could create a specially-crafted SMIL file which would cause HelixPlayer to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code when opened. (CVE-2009-4257) A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way HelixPlayer handled the Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) SET_PARAMETER directive. A malicious RTSP server could use this flaw to crash HelixPlayer or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2009-4248) Multiple buffer overflow flaws were discovered in the way HelixPlayer handled RuleBook structures in media files and RTSP streams. Specially-crafted input could cause HelixPlayer to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2009-4247, CVE-2010-0417) A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way HelixPlayer performed URL un-escaping. A specially-crafted URL string could cause HelixPlayer to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-0416) All HelixPlayer users are advised to upgrade to this updated Linux Distribution Package, which contains backported patches to resolve these issues. All running instances of HelixPlayer must be restarted for this update to take effect.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
