WinZip Computing Inc. recently revealed that Version 9.0 of its popular WinZip file compression program is vulnerable to a variety of security attacks. The company has released a "Service Release 1" to address the security problems.

According to the company, the vulnerabilities were found in the course of an internal review and there is no report that any of the problems have been exploited.
