    Oddsock Playlist generator is used by Radio DJs to
    allow listeners to choose a song to play from the
    Winamp Playlist.Song Requester Version
    2.1 contains multiple buffer overflows, which will
    result in a DoS attack against the Winamp/Shoutcast
    service. The DJ will have to restart Winamp in order to

    player. If you want to check it out, please look at Dr
    Watson logs for more details. All the CGI files in
    Song Requester are vulnerable to DoS attacks, even
    the 'admin.cgi'. Please note that the password you type
    in is in clear text; no asterix signs replace the
