anyone using ace 2019 has a far worse problem.

 

The last version of WinAce was 2.6.9 and was released in 2014.  The winace.com site isn't even up any more.   The only newer release is a BSD Licensed version (2017) that will unpack Ace V2 files.  FWIW, I can't remember the last time I saw an ACE compressed file, probably around 20 years ago.

I'm safe, updated a month ago :D But I was terribly sad when WinACE shut down, it was quite a good format, with strong compression and a lot of options. And the app itself was my favourite packer/unpacker - very powerful, great interface, quite versatile.

well, this wasn't that big a risk, since we had never heard of it before and it seems that no one was ever affected by this...
