Critical Update For WinZip 10.0

On November 14, 2006 WinZip Computing released WinZip 10.0 build 7245, a critical update to all installations of WinZip 10.0.

This build addresses a security vulnerability that exists in one of its component modules.

This vulnerability could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on a system with an unpatched installation of WinZip 10.0 if the user was to visit a malicious web page. WinZip 10.0 users are strongly urged to update to build 7245, due to the critical nature of the vulnerability.

WinZip 10.0 build 7245 is available free of charge to all registered users of WinZip 10.0 Standard and Pro. Previous versions of WinZip are not affected by this vulnerability.

Users should simply download and install the new build over their existing WinZip 10.0 installation. In order to preserve their existing WinZip registration information, they should NOT uninstall current WinZip 10.0 before installing this new build of WinZip 10.0.
