Partition Assistant 6.1 has old version of 7-zip

Latest version of AOMEI Partition Assistant 6.1 has a version 9.20 of 7-zip installed in its directory.

Secunia PSI warns that this version is "end of life" and has security risks.

So please on next version update this to latest version 16.04. Thank you :)


  • Yes, it is the old version, we will consider it in the future. Thanks again for your feedback.                                                                         

  • Still not fixed as of version 6.3 ... A little ridiculous at this point. 7zip 9.2.x is end of life, and there are open and unpatched security vulnerability risks.

    As a workaround you can copy the latest versions of the files 7z.dll and 7z.exe into the PA directory yourself.

  • AOMEI PE Builder 1.5 Also with the same version

  • Yeah. I can drop newer versions in manually, and I have, but I shouldn't really need to & I expect it'll be over-written if I upgrade and they haven't fixed the issue.
