A new security vulnerability has been found by NGSSoftware in the popular MP3 player Winamp in versions 2.91 through 5.2. This vulnerability can allow a remote user to gain access to your computer with the same rights your currently logged on user would have. If you are using this software and your version is between 2.91 and 5.2 it is recommended that you immediately upgrade to Version 5.3 of Winamp.
This vulnerability is exploited by a remote malicious user creating a specially-crafted media file and enticing you to open it. Once this particular media file is opened, they would be able to take control of your computer and execute code of their choice. It is therefore essential that you upgrade your software to the latest version so that this can not occur.
