FilZip 3.05

techultra

FilZip is a freeware file archiver program for the Microsoft Windows
platform. The program has been localized to more than twenty languages.

FilZip fully supports seven different archive formats, allowing the
user to add and extract files from the archives. These include ZIP, BH,
CAB, JAR, LHA (LZH), TAR, and gzip. A handful of other formats are
supported for extraction only, including ACE, ARC, ARJ, RAR, and ZOO.
Files within most formats can be viewed without explicitly unpacking
them, and can be removed or renamed within the archive. ZIP files may
be spanned; that is, written to any number of files with a fixed
maximum size so that they can be placed on removable media. The program
has good shell integration, and can create self-extracting executable
archives for redistribution without licensing fees.

May 31st, 2006 - Security release: Filzip 3.05
Filzip 3.05 fixes the security issue that Secunia Research has
discovered in the library unacev2.dll (developed by e-merge), which
comes with Filzip and is used to handle .ace archive files. The
possible buffer overflow that might happen might be used to launch
malicous software by an attacker.

The only gripe I have with Filzip is that it doesn't support 7-zip.

Well, for 7-Zip you can download Tugzip from http://www.tugzip.com
which is a freeware archiver which supports 7-Zip & many of the
features that Filzip has, Tugzip has along with the fact that Tugzip
can read CD formats such as Bin, ISO, et al.

I remember that I tried Tugzip, but that there were a few annoying
bugs. There hasn't been a software upgrade since September 2005
either.. I looked at the forums and they don't seem to have any beta
versions.

I'm using QuickZip because it seems to be actively developed, with
support for 7-zip. http://www.quickzip.org

Well, I like to thank you. I download the beta version of QuickZip from
the above page & tried it out & I like it. I uninstalled Tugzip & now I
use QuickZip.
