high Nessus Plugin ID 59756


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


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

The version of Winamp installed on the remote host is earlier than 5.63 and is, therefore, reportedly affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A memory corruption error exists in 'in_mod.dll' related to input validation when handling 'Impulse Tracker' (IT) files.

- Heap-based buffer overflows exist related to 'bmp.w5s' when handling 'BI_RGB' and 'UYVY' data in AVI files. Processing decompressed TechSmith Screen Capture Codec (TSCC) data in AVI files can also trigger a heap- based buffer overflow.

Successful exploitation can allow arbitrary code execution.


Upgrade to Winamp 5.63 ( or later.
