> DESCRIPTION:
> BassReFLeX has discovered a vulnerability in WinAmp, which can be
> exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and
> potentially compromise a user's system.
> 
> The vulnerability is cause due to a boundary error within the MIDI
> plug-in (in_midi.dll) when handling MIDI files. This can be exploited
> to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a malicious ".mid" file with
> a specially crafted header.
> 
> Successful exploitation crashes the application and may allow
> execution of arbitrary code.
> 
> The vulnerability has been confirmed in version 5.23 and has also
> been reported in version 5.21. Other versions may also be affected.
> 
> NOTE: The vulnerability may be related to one reported by Fortinet
> Security Research Team.
> 
> SOLUTION:
> Restrict use to trusted MIDI files only.
> 
> Use another program for opening MIDI files by default.
