A file with Chinese Filename

When we use "Add to archive" command in right click menu to create a compressed file ,if there are some non-default-codepage and non-ansi characters in the name of the file(s) to be compressed ,a buffer overflow fault will occured.


[1]:%eax should be sum of filename-base and strlen ,but %eax will be incorrect in the entironment mention above .maybe it's because WinRAR can't get the right strlen [reason is not confirmed]
[2]:the WideCharToMultiByte API will overwrite the pointer referenced by [1]

for this vulnerability is difficult to exploit, I post it here directly without notifying the vendor.
