Winamp gen_jumpex.dll and ml_local.dll buffer overflow
|winamp-cve20134694-bo (85399)||Medium Risk|
Winamp is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by gen_jumpex.dll and ml_local.dll libraries. By persuading a victim to apply an arbitrary skin package, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with elevated privileges or cause the application to crash.
Upgrade to the latest version of Winamp (5.64 or later), available from the Winamp Web site. See References.

- BID-60883: Winamp CVE-2013-4694 Multiple Stack Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities
- CVE-2013-4694: Stack-based buffer overflow in gen_jumpex.dll in Winamp before 5.64 Build 3418 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a package with a long Skin directory name. NOTE: a second buffer overflow involving a long GUI Search field to ml_local.dll was also reported. However, since it is only exploitable by the user of the application, this issue would not cross privilege boundaries unless Winamp is running under a highly restricted environment such as a kiosk.
