Winamp < 5.31 Multiple Buffer Overflows

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a multimedia application that is
susceptible to multiple buffer overflow attacks.

Description :

The remote host is using Winamp, a popular media player for Windows.

The version of Winamp installed on the remote Windows host reportedly
contains two overflow flaws, one involving the 'ultravox-max-msg'
header used in its support of the Ultravox protocol and the other in
its Ultravox Lyrics3 parsing code. Using a specially crafted stream,
a remote attacker may be able to leverage these issues to execute
arbitrary code subject to the privileges of the user.
