A variable overwrite exploit, reported to Bugtraq in 2005, was evaluated by XMB staff in 2008. This vulnerability had not been resolved and was more severe than originally described. Arguments to the 'extract' function were changed in 2008 and released with version 1.9.10 to prevent variable overwrites. These changes were also available in a service pack for version 1.9.8.
