    Newly Patched WinRAR Vulnerability Existed for 19 Years

    WinRAR patches 19-year-old security vulnerability that put millions at risk



    The WinRAR developer has earlier replied about the workaround. Which is either to upgrade to WinRAR 5.70 beta 1 and 2 or just delete the file "UNACEV2.DLL " manually from it's location. See quoted text below.

    As mentioned above if you do not want to upgrade to ver5.70 now, users can just delete the file below manually,

    in the Program Files folder (or in Formats subfolder of WinRAR program folder)
