[CVE-2013-4694] WinAmp v5.63 gen_jumpex.dll and ml_local.dll Multiple Buffer Overflows
From: Inshell Security <info () inshell net>
Date: Mon, 01 Jul 2013 19:53:12 +0200

Inshell Security Advisory
http://www.inshell.net


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.
