WinRAR 6.02 beta 1 changelog

Back to the homepage

WinRAR 6.02 beta 1 brings the following changes:

1. ZIP SFX module refuses to process SFX commands stored in archive
      comment if such comment is resided after beginning of Authenticode
      digital signature. It is done to prevent possible attacks with
      inclusion of ZIP archive into the signature body.

      We already prohibited extracting contents of such malformed archives
      in WinRAR 6.01.

      We are thankful to FireEye Mandiant team for reporting this issue.

   2. WinRAR uses https instead of http in the web notifier window,
      home page and themes links. It also implements additional checks
      within the web notifier. This is done to prevent a malicious web page
      from executing existing files on a user's computer. Such attacks
      are only possible if the intruder has managed to spoof or otherwise
      control user's DNS records. Other factors are also involved
      in limiting its practical application, including a security alert
      prompt asking for a user's confirmation before opening a malicious page.

      We would like to express our gratitude to Igor Sak-Sakovskiy
      for bringing this issue to our attention.

   3. Where appropriate, SFX archive displays the additional line
      with detailed error information provided by operating system.

      For example, previously such archive would display "Cannot create file"
      message alone. Now this message is followed by a detailed reason
      like access denied or file being used by another process.

      In the past this extended error information was available in WinRAR,
      but not in SFX archives.

   4. Switch -idn hides archived names also in 'v' and 'l' commands.
      It can be useful if only the archive type or total information
      is needed.
   5. If -ibck -ri<priority> switches are used together, WinRAR process
      sets the priority specified in -ri switch. Previous versions ignored
      -ri and set the priority to low in the presence of -ibck switch.

   6. When using "File/Change drive" command, WinRAR saves the last folder
      of previous drive and restores it if that drive is selected again

   7. Name of unpacking file is now included into WinRAR incorrect password
      warning for RAR5 archives. It can be helpful when unpacking
      a non-solid archive containing files encrypted with different passwords.
   8. Bugs fixed:

      a) "Convert archives" command issued erroneous "The specified password
         is incorrect" message after succesfully converting RAR archive
         with encrypted file names if new password was set and archive
         was opened in WinRAR shell;

      b) if command progress window was resized up and then quickly resized
         down to original dimensions, window contents could be positioned
