 ====== Windows-Specific Release notes for X2Go Client 4.0.2.1 ====== ====== Windows-Specific Release notes for X2Go Client 4.0.2.1 ======
 +
 +===== Security Update: 4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build6 =====
 +
 +On 2014-10-10, 4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build6 was released with the following changes:
 +CVE-2014-6278
 +    - Windows: Cygwin Bash (sh.exe) updated from 4.1.14-7 to 4.1.17-9. 4.1.17-9 fixes CVE-2014-6278.
 +    - Windows: The aforementioned Cygwin Bash update also fixes the vulnerabilities fixed in 4.1.16-8, CVE-2014-7186,​ CVE-2014-7187,​ CVE-2014-6277.
 +    - Windows: Cygwin krb5 (Kerberos) updated from 1.12.1-2 to 1.12.2-1, which fixes CVE-2014-4341 through -4345.
 +
 +For the exact details of the bash and krb5 updates, see the respective release announcements:​
 +https://​cygwin.com/​ml/​cygwin-announce/​2014-10/​msg00015.html

 +https://​cygwin.com/​ml/​cygwin-announce/​2014-10/​msg00008.html
 +
 +As with most vulnerabilities in 3rd party software, the X2Go project has not done an analysis of whether X2Go Client was actually affected by these vulnerabilities. In fact, it seems unlikely that X2Go Client for Windows is affected by the krb5 vulnerabilities because X2Go Client for Windows uses PuTTY for Kerberos authentication instead. (Cygwin krb5 is merely installed because it is a dependency of Cygwin SSH.) However, as a precaution, we are releasing this updated build of X2Go Client for Windows. Unless an analysis is performed, we strongly encourage all users to update. This includes users of the "​misc"​ fonts and "​full"​ fonts builds.
 +
 +===== Security Update: 4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build5 =====
 +
 +On 2014-09-30, 4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build5 was released with the following changes:
 +
 +    - Windows: Cygwin Bash (sh.exe) updated from 4.1.10-4 to 4.1.14-7. This fixes the "​Shellshock"​ vulnerability.
 +
 +For the exact details of the bash update, see the Cygwin Bash release announcement for 4.1.14-7
 +
 +https://​cygwin.com/​ml/​cygwin-announce/​2014-09/​msg00040.html
 +
 +The X2Go project has not done an analysis of whether X2Go Client was actually affected by the "​Shellshock"​ vulnerability. However, as a precaution, we are releasing this updated build of X2Go Client for Windows with the fixed cygwin bash. Unless an analysis is performed, we strongly encourage all users to update. This includes users of the "​misc"​ fonts and "​full"​ fonts builds.
 +
 +===== Bugfix Update: 4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build4 =====
 +
 +On 2014-09-02, 4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build4 was released with the following changes:
 +
 +    - Windows: Fix missing VcXsrv/​zlib1.dll . The impact of this bug was that VcXsrv would not start if the cwd was changed from the x2goclient directory. (The start menu and desktop shortcuts do have the x2goclient directory as the cwd. So they were not affected.) (Fixes: #587)
 +
 +Users are advised to update from 4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build3 to 4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build4 if they are affected by this bug.
 +
 +===== Security Update: 4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build3 =====
 +
 +On 2014-08-09, 4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build3 was released with the following changes:
 +
 +    - Windows: Win32 OpenSSL updated from 1.0.1h to 1.0.1i, which fixes the 9 CVEs announced on 2014-08-06.
 +    - Windows: Cygwin OpenSSL updated from 1.0.1h-1 to 1.0.1i-1, which fixes the 9 CVEs announced on 2014-08-06.
 +
 +All users of 4.0.2.1+hotfix1 and earlier are strongly encouraged to update to 4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build3. This includes users of the “misc” fonts and “full” fonts builds.
 +
 +Also, please note:
 +
 +    - x2goclient "​4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build2"​ was posted to http://​code.x2go.org/​releases/​ , but users should ignore it because bug #564 was discovered in it. This bug was part of the manually performed build process. "​4.0.2.1+hotfix1+build3"​ should be used instead, it contains the fix for bug #564.
