WinAMP3 buffer overflow Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Acertains the version of WinAMP

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is using WinAMP3, a popular media player
which handles many files format (mp3, wavs and more...)

This version has a buffer overflow which may allow a possible hacker
to execute arbitrary code on this host, with the rights of the user
running WinAMP.

To perform an attack, the attack would have to send a malformed
playlist (.b4s) to the user of this host who would then have to
load it by double clicking on it.

Since .b4s are XML-based files, most antivirus programs will let
them in.

Solution : Uninstall this software or upgrade to a version newer than 3.0 build 488
Threat Level: High
