WinRAR 6.02


Compress, Encrypt, Package and Backup with only one utility

With over 500 million users worldwide, WinRAR is the world's most popular compression tool!

There is no better way to compress files for efficient and secure file transfer, faster e-mail transmission and well organized data storage.

RAR and WinRAR are Windows 10 (TM) compatible, available in over 50 languages and in both 32- and 64-bit and several operating systems (OS) and it is the only compression software that can work with Unicode.

WinRAR at a Glance

  • WinRAR is a powerful compression tool with many integrated additional functions to help you organize your compressed archives.
  • WinRAR puts you ahead of the crowd when it comes to compression. By consistently creating smaller archives, WinRAR is often faster than the competition. This will save you disk space, transmission costs AND valuable working time as well.
  • WinRAR supports all popular compression formats (RAR, ZIP, CAB, ARJ, LZH, ACE, TAR, GZip, UUE, ISO, BZIP2, Z and 7-Zip).
  • WinRAR is ideal for multimedia files. WinRAR automatically recognizes and selects the best compression method. The special compression algorithm compresses multimedia files, executables and object libraries particularly well.
  • WinRAR allows you to split archives into separate volumes easily, making it possible to save them on several disks for example.
  • WinRAR is also ideal, if you are sending data through the web. Its 256 bit password encryption and its authenticated signature technology will give you the peace of mind you have been looking for.
  • WinRAR is a trial product, meaning you have the chance to thoroughly test it. The program can be used absolutely free of charge for 40 days!
  • WinRAR licenses are valid for all available language and platform versions. If you have purchased several licenses, you can even mix versions to meet your own personal needs.

WinRAR - What's new in the latest version:


1. ZIP SFX module refuses to process SFX commands stored in archive comment if such comment is resided after beginning of Authenticode digital signature. It is done to prevent possible attacks with inclusion of ZIP archive into the signature body. 

We already prohibited extracting contents of such malformed archives in WinRAR 6.01. 
 
We are thankful to Jacob Thompson - Mandiant Advantage Labs for reporting this issue. 
 
2. WinRAR uses https instead of http in the web notifier window, home page and themes links. It also implements additional checks within the web notifier. This is done to prevent a malicious web page from executing existing files on a user's computer. Such attack is only possible if the intruder has managed to spoof or otherwise control user's DNS records. Some other factors are also involved in limiting the practical application of this attack. 
 
We would like to express our gratitude to Igor Sak-Sakovskiy for bringing this issue to our attention. 
 
3. Where appropriate, SFX archive displays the additional line with detailed error information provided by operating system. 
 
For example, previously such archive would display "Cannot create file" message alone. Now this message is followed by a detailed reason like access denied or file being used by another process. 
 
In the past this extended error information was available in WinRAR, but not in SFX archives. 
 
4. Switch -idn hides archived names also in 'v' and 'l' commands. It can be useful if only the archive type or total information is needed. 
 
5. If -ibck -ri switches are used together, WinRAR process sets the priority specified in -ri switch. Previous versions ignored -ri and set the priority to low in the presence of -ibck switch. 
 
6. When using "File/Change drive" command, WinRAR saves the last folder of previous drive and restores it if that drive is selected again later. 
 
7. Name of unpacking file is now included into WinRAR incorrect password warning for RAR5 archives. It can be helpful when unpacking a non-solid archive containing files encrypted with different passwords. 
 
8. Bugs fixed: 
 
a) "Convert archives" command issued erroneous "The specified password is incorrect" message after succesfully converting RAR archive with encrypted file names if new password was set and archive was opened in WinRAR shell; 
 
b) if two archive information windows had been opened from Explorer context menu, the compression ratio bar in the first window could erroneously display a value for second archive. 
 
It did not affect the ratio and other text details at the right of window. Only the vertical bar at the left could be updated to a wrong value; 
 
c) if command progress window was resized up and then quickly resized down to original dimensions, window contents could be positioned incorrectly.
