3) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in ALZip, which can
be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system. 

The vulnerability is caused due to multiple boundary errors when 
reading the filename of a compressed file from ALZ, ARJ, ZIP, UUE or
XXE archives. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer
overflow (ALZ), or a heap-based buffer overflow (ARJ / ZIP / 
UUE / XXE).

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code when a
malicious ALZ / ARJ archive is opened, or when a ZIP / UUE / XXE
archive is extracted.

4) Solution 

Update to version 6.13 (Korean and International)
