Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from Aladdin Systems, Inc.

    WATSONVILLE, Calif., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Driving towards development
 of a universal compression solution for all computing platforms and file
 types, Aladdin Systems, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aladdin Systems
 Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:   ALHI), today unveiled public beta versions
 of StuffIt(TM), their award-winning, powerful compression technology, and
 StuffIt Expander, a decompression utility, for Linux, including the popular
 Red Hat(R) operating system and Sun's Solaris operating systems.
     "In this 'information age' businesses and consumers are challenged with
 sending and receiving files that come in a myriad of formats and from a
 variety of platforms," said David Polzine, StuffIt Linux/Unix product manager.
 "At Aladdin we recognize the growing role being played by Linux and Solaris,
 in the global exchange of information and believe StuffIt technology gives
 users a powerful tool to aid in this exchange."
     StuffIt is the industry leader in cross-platform multi-format file
 compression. Wherever there is a need for compressing large files into smaller
 archives, whether to fit them on removable media, posting them to a web site,
 or sending them via email, or storing them on a server, StuffIt is the
 solution. On the other side, when downloading files from the Internet or
 receiving files via email, StuffIt gives users the power to expand and access
 any file type they receive.

 create Zip, StuffIt, Binhex, MacBinary, Uuencode, Unix Compress,
 self-extracting archives for Windows or Macintosh platforms and it can be used
