Oddsock Gen Song Request Plugin security hole!


Recommended Posts

Question: Are you still using Winamp to stream your radio station, Do you rely on the Oddsock song requester plugin to let your listeners request something?


If you answer YES to using the Oddsock song requester part beware as it's full of security holes that could compromise your PC running Winamp.


See this article. http://www.securitytracker.com/id/1004787


My advice if you are still running it would be to ditch Winamp for running your station with and download RadioDJ instead as that now comes with a song request feature. With either a wordpress plugin or a demo webscript.


Oddsocks song request plugin may well have been good 12 years ago but now it's really not worth putting your PC at risk.


Don't say you weren't warned.....
