Media players hit by buffer overflow glitch

Users of popular media player packages from RealNetworks and Apple have been urged to update their software in the wake of separate warnings of potentially troublesome security problems from both companies.

In an advisory updated last week, RealNetworks warns that by creating a specifically-corrupted PNG (Portable Network Graphics) file, it is possible to cause heap corruption to occur. This in turn enables an attacker to execute arbitrary code on a user's machine.
