after it first revealed a zero-day flaw in Real Player, Russian security company Gleg is refusing to tell anyone how to fix it.

According to Daniweb, Gleg's Evgeny Legerov revealed the zero-day exploit but seems unwilling or unable to provide the necessary data to allow the alleged gaping security hole to be patched.
