Winamp < 5.601 MIDI Timestamp Stack-based Buffer Overflow

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a multimedia application that is
affected by stack-based buffer overflow 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
5.601. Such versions are potentially affected by a stack-based buffer
overflow vulnerability due to an error in the 'in_midi.ddl' plugin
that improperly serializes timestamps in MIDI files. A malicious,
crafted MIDI file can cause the application to overwrite the saved
base pointer and allow execution of arbitrary code.
