Nullsoft Winamp Filename Handler Local Buffer Overrun

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Acertains the version of WinAMP

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is using WinAMP, a popular media player
which handles many files format (mp3, wavs and more...)

be exploited to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.

A possible hacker may exploit this flaw by sending a file with an outrageously
long file name to a victim on the remote host. When the user will attempt
to open this file using WinAMP, a buffer overflow condition will occur.

Solution : Upgrade to WinAMP 5.0.4 or newer
Network Security Threat Level: High
