Winamp Unsupported

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a multimedia application that is no
longer supported.

Description :

The remote host is running Winamp, a media player for Windows. As of
December 20, 2013, the vendor no longer provides security fixes for
the installed product.

Lack of support implies that no new security patches for the product
will be released by the vendor. As a result, it is likely to contain
security vulnerabilities.
