      RealOne Player SMIL Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability


    RealNetworks has reported a vulnerability in RealOne Player, which can be
    exploited by malicious people to execute arbitrary code.


    Vulnerable systems:
     * RealOne Player (English only)
     * RealOne Player v2 for Windows (all language versions)
     * RealOne Enterprise Desktop (all versions, standalone and as configured
    by the RealOne Desktop Manager)

    The vulnerability is caused due to an error in the handling of SMIL files.
    This can be exploited to execute script code in the context of an
    arbitrary domain or the local system by constructing a specially crafted
    SMIL file and tricking a user into executing it.

    Updates for RealOne Player can be installed by using the "Check for
    Update" feature.
