The DecodeNumber function in unrarlib.c in unrar 0.0.1 (aka unrar-free or unrar-gpl) suffers from a NULL pointer dereference flaw triggered by a crafted RAR archive. NOTE: this may be the same as one of the several test cases in the CVE-2017-11189 references.

Weakness

A NULL pointer dereference occurs when the application dereferences a pointer that it expects to be valid, but is NULL, typically causing a crash or exit.
