Name : HelixPlayer
Version : 1.0.3
Release : 3.fc3
Summary : Open source media player based on the Helix framework

Update Information:

Updated HelixPlayer packages that fixes two buffer overflow issues are now available.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

A stack based buffer overflow bug was found in HelixPlayer's Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) file processor. An attacker could create a specially crafted SMIL file which would execute arbitrary code when opened by a user. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0455 to this issue.

A buffer overflow bug was found in the way HelixPlayer decodes WAV files. An attacker could create a specially crafted WAV file which could execute arbitrary code when opened by a user. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0611 to this issue.

All users of HelixPlayer are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains HelixPlayer 1.0.3 which is not vulnerable to these issues.
