CRITICAL:
Highly critical

IMPACT:
System access

WHERE:
>From remote

SOFTWARE:
Helix Player 1.x

DESCRIPTION:
c0ntex has discovered a vulnerability in Helix Player, which
potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a
user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a format string error when
displaying the invalid-handle error message. This may be exploited to
execute arbitrary code via a specially crafted ".rp" file. The ".rt"
file format may also be affected.

Successful exploitation requires that the user is e.g. tricking into
opening or following a link to a malicious ".rp" file.

The vulnerability has been confirmed in Helix Player 1.0.5.757
(gold), and affects only the Linux/Unix platforms. Other versions may
also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Do not open media files from untrusted sources.
