RE: Who uses WinRar? #11
I actually still use Winrar and have v5.61. Thanks for the warning!
When I see here how many people say that 7zip is better, I guess I should try that instead of updating winrar
Do more epic shit!

Winrar has more features, 7-Z has better compression. I use Winrar because it stores creation timestamp not just modification.

Thank you for the information, I have been using WinRar for ages and never bothered to update it.

There's no point In updating It- functionality Is no different.

As OP says, there's an exploit on old versions of Winrar so you absolutely should update it. The exploit was a big one (and widely known too) so it's very important to update it regardless of no new functionality.

Perhaps I should've been more clear with my post.

I was referring to updating WinRAR In general- without any known vulnerabilities. It's useless doing so.

Indeed, I have a newer version of Winrar on my laptop and the only visual difference are the icons.

I actually like the new appearance.

It's a somewhat significant change for the better.
