Security issues?

Since Winamp hasn't been updated for a long time, isn't it dangerous to use it?
I mean, for most popular programs there are updates all the time to patch new vulnerabilities found.

I would love to install it again (after being displeased by other media players).

Any known issues?

nothing new is in the CVE database for Winamp so no one has found and reported anything new since the last release.

if you're that worried then you shouldn't use it but you're generally only going to have the potential for issues if you play media from unknown sources which is no different an attack vector that can be the case for any other program.

it's more the outstanding bugs that are the issue rather than security vulnerabilities.
