A vulnerability has been reported in Total Commander, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user’s system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in UNACEV2.DLL when extracting an ACE archive containing a file with an overly long filename. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow when a user extracts a specially crafted ACE archive.

Security website Secunia rates this vulnerability as Moderately critical and suggests to update to version 6.54 or later.
