DescriptionThe remote host is running Winamp, a multimedia software application. This version of Winamp is vulnerable to a content-parsing flaw. Specifically, when handling malformed PLS files, Winamp can be crashed. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to convince a local user to open a malicious file with Winamp. Successful exploitation would result in the application crashing.
