For any forum users using Winamp to play their music on.
Three serious security flaws have been discovered in the popular Winamp media player. The flaws can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow, which in turn can be used to execute malicious code.
Sunbelt already has discovered at least one spyware exploiting this flaw.
Winamp swiftly released an updated version, which fixes these vulnerabilities. You can download the new version from www.winamp.com. Winamp users are lucky that Microsoft doesn't make the program. We would be waiting for another two weeks for that patch.
