zlib vulnerability "Ordinal Not Found"

Postby overflow » Tue Jul 15, 2008 12:04 pm

Hi, I'm using Wallpaper Cycler Lite on XP Pro SP3 and it really works great. However, I believe the zlib.dll file that is installed needs to be updated. When I scan my computer with Secunia PSI, it detects the file as version 1.1.3 and says it is insecure. I downloaded the updated zlib.dll file, version 1.2.3, (the name is actually zlib1.dll but renaming worked with another program that uses zlib). and replaced the file in the WPC folder.

Now, when I run WPC I get this message:

WallpaperCycler Lite.exe - Ordinal Not Found
The ordinal 84 could not be located in the dynamic link library zlib.dll


What needs to be done to get WPC to use the updated zlib.dll file? TIA.

I don't think there is an easy workaround for this.
I'll check to include the latest zlib in the next release.

Wow, thanks very much! I've put the old file back for the time being to get it working again.
