    --- WinZip 8.1 SR-1 now available ---

    WinZip 8.1 Service Release 1 (SR-1) includes a change to the original
    release of WinZip 8.1. The change addresses a vulnerability that is
    already properly handled, as of WinZip 8.0, for Zip files; WinZip 8.1
    SR-1 addresses it for the other archive types supported by WinZip, such
    as TAR and CAB.

    WinZip will now warn you if you attempt to open any archive that uses a
    parent folder (that is, "..") specification for any of the files that
    it contains. The reason for the warning is that extraction from such an
    archive could allow files to be extracted to locations outside of the
    folder tree that you have specified for the extraction. A malicious
    individual who created such an archive and convinced you to extract its
    contents could exploit this to overwrite important files elsewhere on
    your system.

    All WinZip users are encouraged to upgrade to WinZip 8.1 SR-1.

    Further information about WinZip 8.1 SR-1 is available on the web page

    --- WinZip E-Mail Attachment Add-On for Outlook Beta now available ---

    We are pleased to announce the beta release of the WinZip E-Mail
    Attachment Add-On for Outlook.

    This new add-on makes it easy for you to zip (compress) the files that
    you attach to Microsoft® Outlook 2000 or Outlook 2002 e-mail messages.
    Zipping attachments saves transmission time and disk storage for both
    the sender and receiver of the e-mail.

    For complete information about new features and how to download the
    add-on, see the web page
