RealNetworks has released its latest security update for its RealPlayer software. If you use RealPlayer for Windows, it strongly recommends downloading the most current version released late last week, which patches vulnerabilities and contains bug fixes and other updates to the player.

The software contained a security flaw that, if exploited, could allow arbitrary code to be run on a device if the user visits a malicious site or opens a malicious file.

Users running older versions of RealPlayer should download the update from to protect their computers from hackers.

I am right there with you Bozobub who still use RP? It has been close to 10 years since I used it. At first I went to Real Alternative and eventually dropped using that as well.
