RealNetworks has warned of four flaws in its media player software, three of which pose a severe security risk.
The Seattle-based digital media company released patches on Thursday to fix the problems. The bugs affect older versions of its flagship RealPlayer as well as of Rhapsody, Helix Player and RealOne Player. They aren't found in the most recent versions of RealPlayer and Rhapsody, according to a company advisory. The flaws are found in RealNetworks' software for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Linux systems.
