Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'HelixPlayer-uninstall' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
HelixPlayer-uninstall on CentOS 4

Technical Details:
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 Linux Distribution Package from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. Users wishing to continue to use Helix Player should download it directly from the linked references.

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

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".
