Security Holes in RealPlayer, QuickTime


Recommended Posts

Researchers are warning of serious security holes in two popular digital media players -- RealNetworks' RealOne and Apple's QuickTime -- that have put millions of systems at risk.  

The vulnerabilities, which are not related, affect the way the media players read certain file types and could leave susceptible systems open to intrusion.

RealNetworks confirmed the security hole in its flagship media player, which has enjoyed widespread adoption among digital media enthusiasts. Affected versions of the player include the RealOne Player and RealOne Player v2 for Windows, RealPlayer 8 for Windows, RealPlayer 8 for Mac OS 9, RealOne Player for Mac OS X, RealOne Enterprise Desktop Manager and RealOne Enterprise Desktop.

Not that the first part matters that much. I mean really how many savvy people really use Real Player?

Real Player? What's that? :wink:

I removed both of those a while ago.
