It seems that the ZIP file format vulnerabilities are going to be exploited more and more now onwards after the zip bomb episode.
One of the main reasons for the rise of GIF file format is its capability to contain up to 256 indexed colors and being saved in lossless format. Being lossless, the clarity of the image is not affected with GIF compression. On top of that, the power of GIFs lies in the fact that GIF images can also be animated and saved animated GIFs can be displayed on websites for the representation of animations.
ZIP file, being an archive with one or more compressed files, lets you store files together or separately. Each file can be compressed using different compression techniques like Deflate, BZIP2, Implode, Store, Shrink, LZMA, WavPack, or PPMd. An insight into its file format specifications: https://wiki.fileformat.com/specification/compression/zip/ let you know how the ZIP bombs may have been achieved.

RIP! The Data Secretary you provided lead to a whole new era of word processing. You will be remembered for your contributions.
Seems we are heading to point 0 in this case where the certificates will have to be re-evaluated.
Cyber criminals and hackers are interested in abusing digital certificates to conduct illicit activities like cyber espionage, sabotage or malware diffusion.
I believe the use of DOC file format is getting less and less with the passage of time and perhaps that is why Microsoft isn’t interested in looking into it further.
Really helpful and informative!
Is there any list of changes available that are incorporated in the new DWG file format?
The DWG format has been updated to provide improvements in the efficiency of opening and saving operations, especially for drawings that contain many annotative objects and viewports. Additionally, 3D solid and surface creation now uses the newest geometric modeler (ASM), which provides improved security and stability.
Primary commands: OPEN, QSAVE, SAVEAS
Can anyone share a summary of what they have improved in latest version? It may help in judging if the inconvenience to users justifies the change or not.
