Vulnerability in all previous versions of WinZip - WinZip 9.0 Fixes a
Security Issue with MIME-Encoded Files

http://www.winzip.com/fmwz90.htm

"WinZip 9.0, released in February 2004, contains a fix for a
recently-discovered security vulnerability affecting earlier versions of
WinZip. The vulnerability does not affect .ZIP files. Instead, it
affects the MIME-encoded files that WinZip is also able to work with."
