winamp upgrade needed

Winamp users need to upgrade to version 5.13 immediately, as the previous version 5.12 release contains a critical security exploit that can allow for remote execution of arbitrary code. The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error during the handling of filenames including a computer name. This can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow via a specially crafted playlist containing a filename starting with an overly long computer name (about 1040 bytes).
