Researchers at eEye Digital Security have flagged another critical vulnerability in RealPlayer, the digital media software released by RealNetworks Inc.
The Aliso Viejo, Calif.-based eEye said in a brief advisory that the flaw can be exploited by remote malicious hackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the logged-in user.
The bug carries a “high risk” rating because it potentially puts millions of Windows users at risk of computer takeover attacks.
The flaw was reported to RealNetworks in November. A patch is not yet available.
