Realplayer, ActiveX, IE Exploits

  1. RealNetworks said that the most up-to-date Windows editions of RealPlayer 10.5 and beta Version 11 are immune to the attacks. Those versions were released last Friday when RealNetworks fixed a flaw in an ActiveX control it installed on systems running Internet Explorer. At least one of the newest flaws can also be traced to the ActiveX control.

    Unlike last week's problem, however, four of the six vulnerabilities disclosed yesterday also can be exploited on Mac and Linux machines that have RealPlayer installed. Updated editions are also available for those operating systems, with links available from the security bulletin RealNetworks posted on its site.
