Description


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

1) An error in bmp.w5s when allocating memory using values from the "strf" chunk to process BI_RGB video data within AVI files can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow.

2) An error in bmp.w5s when allocating memory using values from the "strf" chunk to process UYVY video data within AVI files can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow.

3) An error in bmp.w5s when processing decompressed TechSmith Screen Capture Codec (TSCC) data within AVI files can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow.

4) Some unspecified errors in the in_mod.dll module when processing Impulse Tracker (IT) files can be exploited to corrupt memory.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities allows execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerabilities #1 through #3 are confirmed in version 5.622. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Update to version 5.63 Build 3234.
