Any user could execute "arbitrary code", but only root has the potential to execute arbitrary code that could have devistating consequences.
Still, that's pretty freaking scary. Think it affects Helix Player, too?

"A patch is expected in a couple of weeks."
well, you don't need to be root to have bastards running code for you that will "rm -fr ~" :/ But, who uses realplayer anyway, ne? :PRegards Scienitca (registered user #335819 - http://counter.li.org )

Yeah, this is yet another case of "doesn't affect me, I don't use the software". Whenever some "news" organization makes broad sweeping claims like "LINUX VIRUS FOUND!!!" I just have to laugh. Nine times out of ten it's a problem with some obscure program or library that I have never and will never use. I've never liked Real products.Registered Linux user #270181
