    [news=http://www.winamp.com/images/header/logo.gif]A security bug in Winamp is being exploited by miscreants to install spyware on machines running the media player software, experts have warned.

    Earlier this week, security companies warned that attack code for exploiting the flaw was circulating on the Internet. On Thursday, Sunbelt Software said it had found a Web site hosting a malicious Winamp playlist file. Opening the file loads spyware onto an unwitting user's PC, it said.

    Nullsoft have released an update (v5.13) that plugs the hole.

    Interesting. With this new comp everything sounds just as good in windows media player as it does as winamp. I'll probbly just stick to WMP for the time being.
