Playlists could be WinAmp hack

Playlist files for the WinAmp player could contain a new flaw, a security firm warns.

Playlist files for the WinAmp player could contain a new flaw, security firm Secunia said this week. The company advised people to remove the associations in the program for the ".cda" and ".m3u" extensions in order to avoid being bitten by the bug, which it rated as "highly critical"--the company's second highest rating.

The vulnerability is due to a memory problem with a certain function in the program that reads the music lists. The flaw occurs in version 5.05 and 5.06 of the program, the firm stated.
