Winamp < 5.541 NowPlaying Feature Metadata XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a multimedia application that is
affected by a cross-site script vulnerability.

Description :

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

The version of Winamp installed on the remote host is earlier than
5.541. Such versions reportedly contain a cross-site scripting vulnerability
involving the software's 'NowPlaying' feature because the embedded
browser fails to sanitize metadata in media files of JavaScript before
displaying it to the user.
