    I don't know if tamper protection would help or not, but you can remove the exploit:

    To users who are not interested in an upgrade or who don't find a localized version of WinRAR 5.70 yet, win.rar GmbH’s advice is to delete the UNACEV2.DLL file from their current WinRAR version to be reliably protected again. All users of WinRAR 5.10 or any newer version can find the UNACEV2.DLL file in the WinRAR program folder. WinRAR users of versions older than 5.10, can find the UNACEV2.DLL file in the Formats subfolder of the WinRAR program.

    Good thing I dropped WinRAR some time ago and switched to 7-zip for .rar archives, unless of course it has the same problem.

    This is what I did, I pirated a cracked winrar a few years ago. Not even sure what the version is- 5 something.

    WinRAR updated now, for its ease and utilities is that I still use WinRAR.

    If other open-source ones are installed, it would be nice to have them and display them in the browser's right menu such as WinRAR.

    I like 7-zip a lot. It does everything I need and does have a range of context menu options.
    I guess I've never come across an ace archive since 7-zip has been able to unpack all the rar archives I've used it on. If there are ace archives out there in the wild I'll just live without. I'm getting more and more used to the idea of "living without" when it comes to personal computers these days.
