The current version of winamp contains an error in its playlist parsing allowing malicious users to execute code via a prepared playlist. This bug can even be triggered through a website - without user interaction - by linking to a pls file in an IFRAME tag. Windows DEP (Data Execution Prevention) will stop this bug. If you dont have DEP its strongly advised to delete Winamp until a non vulnerable version is released. Greets, carol
