Winamp < 5.34a MP4 File Handling Overflow

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3976


The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.


The remote host is running Winamp, a multimedia software application. This version of Winamp is vulnerable to a content-parsing flaw when handling malformed MP4 files. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to convince a local user to open a malicious MP4 file with Winamp. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker executing arbitrary code on the remote host.


Upgrade to version 5.34a or higher.
