Winamp < 5.5 libFLAC Integer Overflow

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

Description

The remote host is running Winamp, a multi-media software application. This version of Winamp includes a library that is reported to be prone to a remote integer overflow. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to convince a Winamp user to open a file with malformed FLAC data. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker executing arbitrary code on the remote client system.

Solution

Upgrade to version 5.5 or higher.
