Winamp < 5.14 .M3U File Handling Buffer Overflow

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

Description

The remote host is using Winamp, a popular media player for Windows. It is possible that a remote attacker using a specially-crafted playlist can cause a buffer overflow in the version of Winamp installed on the remote host, resulting in a crash of the application or even execution of arbitrary code subject to the user's privileges. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to convince a Winamp user to open a malicious '.m3u' file.

Solution

Upgrade to version 5.14 or higher.
