PowerArchiver 14.02.03 Incorrect PKZIP Encryption Usage
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 73380
SynopsisThe remote Windows host contains an application that is affected by an incorrect encryption usage vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote host has PowerArchiver version 14.02.03 installed. It is, therefore, affected by a flaw with the encryption usage.
A flaw exists in the application where the insecure PKZIP encryption method is used when a user attempts to encrypt files with AES 256-bit encryption.
Note that Nessus has not attempted to exploit this issue, but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to PowerArchiver 14.02.05 or later.
