ZDI-11-265: RealNetworks Realplayer QCP Parsing Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

http://www.zerodayinitiative.com/advisories/ZDI-11-265

August 16, 2011

-- CVE ID:
CVE-2011-2950

-- CVSS:
9, (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:C)

-- Affected Vendors:
RealNetworks

-- Affected Products:
RealNetworks RealPlayer

-- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable installations of RealNetworks RealPlayer. User interaction is
required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must visit a
malicious page or open a malicious file.

The specific flaw exists within qcpfformat.dll, which is responsible for
parsing QCP media files. The process creates a static 256 byte
allocation on the heap and trusts a user-supplied counter from the file
within a memory copy loop. As the source data is also user-supplied from
the file, this can be abused by a remote attacker to execute arbitrary
code running in the context of the web browser.

-- Vendor Response:
RealNetworks has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More
details can be found at:
