    Does downloading metadata and album art use Javascript?

    Does dBpoweramp use Javascript from a remote website/server when

    * Downloading metadata?
    * Searching the Internet for additional album art?

    The issue is would running such Javascript allow for a Spectre Variant 2 (CVE-2017-5715) attack? This attack requires processors to have an update microcode to prevent, which is not available for all machines. If dBpoweramp does not execute Javascript (or other code) from a remote source, then I don't think the attack can happen.
