secunia says arbitrary code execution is possible using specially crafted files, so B2 is correct.

CVE-2009-1788 (
  Heap-based buffer overflow in voc_read_header in libsndfile 1.0.15
  through 1.0.19, as used in Winamp 5.552 and possibly other media
  programs, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
  (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a VOC
  file with an invalid header value.
