Secunia Research has discovered two vulnerabilities in Winamp, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerabilities are caused due to boundary errors in in_mp3.dll within the construction of stream titles when parsing Ultravox streaming metadata. This can be exploited to cause stack-based buffer overflows via overly long "<artist>" and "<name>" tag values in the <metadata> section.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in versions 5.21, 5.5, and 5.51. Other versions may also be affected.
