Winamp Player FLV Data Processing Multiple Overflows

Winamp Player FLV Data Processing Multiple Overflows
Posted Jul 14, 2010
Authored by Nicolas Joly | Site vupen.com

VUPEN Vulnerability Research Team discovered multiple vulnerabilities in Winamp. These issues are caused by integer and buffer overflow errors within the "vp6.w5s" component when parsing malformed Flash Video data, which could allow attackers to execute arbitrary code by tricking a user into opening a specially crafted FLV file. Versions 5.572 and below are affected.
