Winamp < 5.22 MIDI File Handling Overflow

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

Description

The remote host is running Winamp, a multimedia software application. This version of Winamp is vulnerable to a buffer overflow. Specifically, when handling a malformed MIDI file, Winamp may crash, possibly executing arbitrary code. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to convince a Winamp user to open a malicious MIDI file.

Solution

Upgrade to version 5.22 or higher.
