Winamp < 5.03 Filename Handler Local Buffer Overflow
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 16199
SynopsisThe remote application is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.
DescriptionThe remote host is using Winamp, a popular media player that handles many files format (mp3, wavs and more...).
The remote version of this software is vulnerable to a local buffer overrun when handling a large file name. This buffer overflow may be exploited to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.
An attacker may exploit this flaw by sending a file with a long file name to a victim on the remote host. When the user attempts to open this file using Winamp, a buffer overflow condition will occur.
SolutionUpgrade to Winamp 5.03 or later.
