New Winzip Vulnerabilities

Recommended Posts

A very serious problem is found in the new version of Winzip 10. This is due to the FileView ActiveX Control used by WinZip 10.

Users of WinZip 10 who accedientially venture into malicious websites could suffer due to this. This is rated highly critical by the security firm Secunia.

Only those who are using WinZip 10.0 with a build lower than 7245 are exposed to this critical bug.

Those who are using WinZip 9 and older versions do not have this problem.

The Patch WinZip 10.0 build 7245 is available free of charge to all registered users of both Standard and Professional versions.

You can download the patch from http://www.winzip.com/wz7245.htm

I haven't used WinZip in a while now - years, actually. Why pay for software when I can get a legally free program like CAM UnZip that does the same thing?
