    Description:
    Multiple vulnerabilities has been reported in Winzip, which potentially can be exploited to compromise a user's system.

    1) Some unspecified vulnerabilities which can be exploited to cause buffer overflows. Successful exploitation can potentially lead to execution of arbitrary code.

    2) A problem caused due to insufficient validation of command-line arguments. This can be exploited by using a specially crafted argument to cause a buffer overflow and potentially execute arbitrary code.

    Solution:
