This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute code on vulnerable installations of RealPlayer. User interaction is required in that a user must open a malicious .pls file or visit a malicious web site.
The specific flaw exists during the parsing of corrupted playlist files. Malicious corruption causes RealPlayer to call into a static heap address which can be leveraged by an attacker resulting in arbitrary code execution under the context of the logged in user.
