Hey, I haven't really researched this since I don't use WinAmp all that often any longer, but I noticed this in the weekly Secunia alerts...

    Originally posted by Secunia


    A vulnerability has been discovered in Winamp, which can be exploited
    by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

    Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code on a user's
    system when e.g. a malicious website is visited.

    The vulnerability has been confirmed in version 5.12. Other versions
    may also be affected.

    NOTE: An exploit is publicly available.

    Please refer to the referenced Secunia advisory below for additional
    details.

So, you may want to look into this if you use WinAmp.

//edit: I see. This has been updated. The solution on this one used to say "Use another product". It looks like you just need to update to 5.13. I'd highly recommend this update if you have WinAmp. Take the 10 minutes just to be sure. I'm downloading it now.

Well, since they can't guarantee that any mechanism will work 100% - I wouldn't trust it.
