Winamp < 5.52 Ultravox Streaming Metadata in_mp3.dll Multiple Tag Overflow

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a multimedia application that is
affected by multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities.

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 stack-based buffer overflows in 'in_mp3.dll' when parsing
Ultravox streaming metadata that can be triggered by overly-long
'<artist>' and '<name>' tag values. If an attacker can trick a user
on the affected host into opening a specially crafted file, he could be
able to leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code on the host
subject to the user's privileges.
