A vulnerability has been reported in Explzh, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to the application loading an executable file in an insecure manner and can be exploited by tricking a user into e.g. opening a ZIP or LZH file located on a remote SMB share.
Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code, but requires that the application during installation was configured to be associated with e.g. ZIP or LZH files (non-default option).
The vulnerability is reported in versions prior to 5.68.
Solution: Update to version 5.68.
