WinAmp Finally Fixes Some Of Its Bugs
« on: December 18, 2011, 09:42:01 am »
Nowdays folks expect exploits and bugs to be resolved in days if not hours so its with some suprise the folks behind WinAmp have finally gotten round to fixing some serious flaws that are at least twelve years old  :o

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/12/13/winamp_update/

An update to Winamp closes a terrible trio of critical security holes in the popular media player application.

Quote
The rather old-school vulnerabilities involve a brace of integer overflow cockups in the in_avi.dll plug-in and a heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability in the in_mod.dll plug-in library. All three flaws create a means to inject hostile code into systems running vulnerable versions of the software, which is developed by Nullsoft, a division of AOL Music. Exploits would involve tricking victims into attempting to play malformed media files.


Go here to get the newest version and keep yourself safe  :)
