WinRAR is an archiving utility that completely supports RAR and ZIP archives and is able to unpack CAB, ARJ, LZH, TAR, GZ, UUE, BZ2, JAR, ISO, 7Z, Z archives. It consistently makes smaller archives than the competition, saving disk space and transmission costs. WinRAR offers you the benefit of industry strength archive encryption using AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with a key of 128 bits. It supports files and archives up to 8,589 billion gigabytes in size. It also offers the ability to create self extracting and multi volume archives. With recovery record and recovery volumes, you can reconstruct even physically damaged archives.
WinRAR 6.24 Beta 1 fixes:
- WinRAR and UnRAR.dll extraction command dereferenced a null pointer and crashed when processing a zero length archive name in the archive metadata stored with -am switch. We are thankful to Radoslaw Madej from Check Point software for reporting this issue;
- WinRAR and UnRAR.dll extraction command overwrote extracted file data with contents of ::$DATA NTFS alternate data stream, if such stream was present in the archive. In this case unpacked data size and checksum could mismatch file size and checksum displayed in WinRAR file list. It didn’t affect file name and type, which were displayed properly. We are thankful to Ata Hakcil for reporting this issue.
