Available the new 7 Zip 19 00 the new version of this free and open source file compressor with improvements in encryption and corrections

When working with compressed files, the two best known applications are, on the one hand, the classic WinZIP (used, although especially within corporate environments) , and on the other hand WinRAR, used by a large number of users and that last week was news because of a vulnerability that had endangered all users since 2000. However, In addition to the two previous applications, there are other file compressors increasingly known and used by users, being one of the best 7-Zip, who today releases a new version.

7-Zip is one of the best known and most complete free and open source file compressors we can find. This file compressor, in addition to having its own interface and its own characteristics, has a complete free file compression and decompression engine, so many other known applications, such as PeaZip, are really based on 7-Zip.

After 7-Zip received 3 updates throughout 2018, 18.01, 18.05 and 18.06, which included numerous performance optimizations and improvements in memory usage, today it receives a new update, 19.0, which It comes with interesting improvements and novelties.

News from 7-Zip 19.0

Although we will not see major visual changes in this new version of 7-Zip, what we are going to find will be several internal changes designed to improve the performance of this open source file compressor.

The first of the novelties that we will find in this new version is an improvement in the encryption of 7z files. Until now, when we compressed a file with 7-Zip, it used a 64-bit initiation vector. As of now, this vector has been increased to 128-bit , being much much safer and difficult to break. In addition to this change, the pseudo-random number generator has also been improved to avoid possible weaknesses that could trigger the divination of the key.

In addition to this change, the Developer has also fixed several errors, not related to security, that have been detected in the compressor itself. Of course, at the moment these errors have not been listed, so for now we can not know what they are.

How to download 7-Zip 19.0

This new version of 7- Zip is now available on the network, and anyone who uses this compressor, or wants to give it a try as an alternative to WinRAR, can download it for free from the following link.

Once the new version has been downloaded, we simply install it on our computer and that's it, in a matter of seconds we can start using this new update. There is no compatibility problem with the previous versions, and neither does it pose any problem for our security not to update, we simply could not take advantage of the new reinforced encryption algorithm for the 7z files we create.

The rest of the applications based on 7-Zip, as the aforementioned PeaZip, will not take too long to make the leap to this new version to improve the stability of the compressor, thanks to the bug fixes, and also allow Users use the new 128-bit encryption.

Are you a 7-Zip user? What is your favorite file compressor and why?
