Winamp Unsupported

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 71572


The remote Windows host contains a multimedia application that is no longer supported.


The remote host is running Winamp, a media player for Windows. As of December 20, 2013, the vendor no longer provides security fixes for the installed product.

Lack of support implies that no new security patches for the product will be released by the vendor. As a result, it is likely to contain security vulnerabilities.


Remove Winamp and install a supported multimedia application.
