[CVE-2013-4695] WinAmp v5.63 gen_ff.dll links.xml Value Parsing Invalid Pointer Dereference
From: Inshell Security <info () inshell net>

1. ADVISORY INFORMATION
-----------------------
Product:        WinAmp
Vendor URL:     www.winamp.com
Type:           Pointer Issues [CWE-465]
Date found:     2013-06-05
Date published: 2013-07-01
CVSSv2 Score:   4,4 (AV:L/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVE:            CVE-2013-4695


2. CREDITS
----------
This vulnerability was discovered and researched by Julien Ahrens from
Inshell Security.


3. VERSIONS AFFECTED
--------------------
WinAmp v5.63, older versions may be affected too.


4. VULNERABILITY DESCRIPTION
----------------------------
An invalid pointer dereference vulnerability has been identified in
WinAmp v5.63.

The application loads the contents of the %APPDATA%\WinAmp\links.xml on
startup (the key lngId="default") and while browsing through the
bookmarks in the Browser view of the GUI, but does not properly validate
the length of the string loaded from the "<link name>" and "<home url>"
keys before using them in a pointer call in the library gen_ff.dll,
which leads to a invalid pointer dereference condition with possible
code execution.

An attacker needs to force the victim to place an arbitrary links.xml
file into the target directory 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.
