Insight

Insight

Helix Player is a media player. Multiple security flaws were discovered in RealPlayer. Helix Player and RealPlayer share a common source code base. Therefore, some of the flaws discovered in RealPlayer may also affect Helix Player. Some of these flaws could, when opening, viewing, or playing a malicious media file or stream, lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running Helix Player. (CVE-2010-2997, CVE-2010-4375, CVE-2010-4378, CVE-2010-4379, CVE-2010-4382, CVE-2010-4383, CVE-2010-4384, CVE-2010-4385, CVE-2010-4386, CVE-2010-4392) The Red Hat Security Response Team is unable to properly determine the impact or fix all of these issues in Helix Player, due to the source code for RealPlayer being unavailable. Due to the security concerns this update removes the HelixPlayer package from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. Users wishing to continue to use Helix Player should download it directly from the linked references.
