1. ADVISORY INFORMATION  
-----------------------  
Product: WinAmp  
Vendor URL: www.winamp.com  
Type: Stack-based Buffer Overflow [CWE-121]  
Date found: 2013-06-05  
Date published: 2013-07-01  
CVSSv2 Score: Bug #1: 7,5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)  
Bug #2: 3,7 (AV:L/AC:H/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)  
CVE: CVE-2013-4694  
  
  
2. CREDITS  
----------  
These vulnerabilities were discovered and researched by Julien Ahrens  
from Inshell Security.  
  
  
3. VERSIONS AFFECTED  
--------------------  
WinAmp v5.63, older versions may be affected too.  
  
  
4. VULNERABILITY DESCRIPTION (BUG #1)  
-------------------------------------  
The application loads the directories in %PROGRAMFILES%\WinAmp\Skins on  
startup to determine the skins that have been installed and to list them  
in the application menu point "Skins" and in the Skins Browser. But the  
application does not properly validate the length of the directory name  
before passing it as argument to a lstrcpynW call in the library  
gen_jumpex.dll, which leads to a buffer overflow condition with possible  
code execution.  
  
This flaw is also exploitable via the %APPDATA%\WinAmp\winamp.ini. The  
application loads the contents on startup, but does not properly  
validate the length of the string loaded from the "skin" key before  
passing it as an argument to the same lstrcpynW call in the library  
gen_jumpex.dll, which leads to the same buffer overflow condition.  
  
An attacker either needs to trick the victim to download and apply an  
arbitrary skin package in order to exploit the vulnerability or to copy  
an arbitrary winamp.ini into the %APPDATA%\WinAmp directory. Successful  
exploits can allow attackers to execute arbitrary code with the  
privileges of the user running the application. Failed exploits will  
result in a denial-of-service condition.  
  
  
4. VULNERABILITY DESCRIPTION (BUG #2)  
-------------------------------------  
The application loads the string of the GUI "Search" field from the  
"WinAmp Library" when entered by a user and after switching to another  
menu point, but does not properly validate the length of the string  
before passing it as an argument to a GetDlgItemTextW call in the  
library ml_local.dll, which leads to a buffer overflow condition with  
possible code execution.  
  
An attacker needs local access to the client in order to exploit the  
vulnerability. Successful exploits can allow attackers to execute  
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.  
Failed exploits will result in a denial-of-service condition.
