RealNetworks Patch Fixes Four Critical Bugs
Real Networks, the company that makes the RealOne and RealPlayer multimedia players (and runs the Rhapsody music service), has issued a set of patches to fix at least four serious security problems in its various products.
Updates are available for versions of the company's software running on Windows, Mac and Linux. To find out which versions need patching, check out the above link. Instructions for finding out which version you are running and how to download the patches are available at that link as well.
The company said the flaws could be used to install spyware or inject code that could let attackers take complete control over a victim's PC. Real Networks didn't assign the flaws a severity rating, but other security vendors are calling it a "critical" set of fixes, meaning it's a good idea not to ignore this. If you use any of these programs, take a second to update them if needed.
