Description


Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Winamp, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

This vulnerability is confirmed in versions 5.581 and 5.59 Beta Build 3033.

2) An integer overflow error in the "in_midi.dll" plugin can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted MIDI file.
