Paul,

You need not be worried unless you open RAR files that come from questionable sources.

The DLL versions you have are supplied by Kim in his updates. The dates of those files are actually 4-27-19 (not 5-23-23).

As noted by BleepingComputer, the current version which fixes the flaw is 6.23.0. I expect Kim will provide the updated versions in his next Zeta.

Meanwhile, if you are still concerned, you can download the UnRARDLL.exe package here:
https://www.rarlab.com/rar/UnRARDLL.exe
extract those two files from that, and replace them in your ZTree directory.

- John
