Winamp version 5.63 closes four security holes
Nullsoft has released Winamp 5.63 to close four security holes which could be exploited to run arbitrary code of the victim's machine. Details on the Secunia site @ http://secunia.com/advisories/46624/
A number of other bugs have also been fixed in the new release.
The update hasn't made it yet to the official Winamp download page, but can be downloaded via a link in their forums @ http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=345684
Extras you might want to avoid.
- UniBlue Rergistry Booster | checkmark the bottom radio button as shown in the screenshot to avoid installing this piece of bloatware.
- Remove the checkmark from all the options shown in the screenshot below otherwise your favourite search engine will change to AOL among other undesirables.
- Uncheck the option to install 7Digital to avoid a number of useless add-ons.
