Description Sam Fowler 2018-01-25 07:23:40 UTC
Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities exist in 7-Zip's RAR compression handler. Versions before 18.00 are affected.

p7zip is a port of 7-Zip's 7za.exe for Unix. p7zip does not include 7-Zip's RAR compression code and is not vulnerable.

our p7zip don't have rar support, IMHO,  this report should be close as not a bug
