Description


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

2) An integer overflow error in the in_avi.dll plugin when allocating memory using the RIFF INFO chunk's size value can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted AVI file.

3) An error in the in_mod.dll plugin when parsing the song message data within Impulse Tracker (IT) files can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities may allow execution of arbitrary code.
