Vulnerability Assessment Details
Checks the version number of Winamp
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote Windows host contains a multimedia application that is
susceptible to multiple buffer overflow attacks.
The remote host is using Winamp, a popular media player for Windows.
The version of Winamp installed on the remote Windows host reportedly
contains two overflow flaws, one involving the 'ultravox-max-msg'
header used in its support of the Ultravox protocol and the other in
its Ultravox Lyrics3 parsing code. Using a specially-crafted stream,
a remote attacker may be able to leverage these issues to execute
arbitrary code subject to the rights of the user.
