Winamp < 5.13 Multiple Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities in Winamp < 5.13

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

A multimedia application that is vulnerable to multiple buffer
overflows is installed on the remote Windows host.

Description :

The remote host is using Winamp, a popular media player for Windows.

It's possible that a remote attacker using a specially-crafted M3U or
PLS file can cause a buffer overflow in the version of Winamp
installed on the remote Windows host, resulting in a crash of the
application and even execution of arbitrary code remotely subject to
the user's rights. Note that these issues can reportedly be
exploited without user interaction by linking to a '.pls' file in an
IFRAME tag.
