-The X2Go project has not done an analysis of whether X2Go Client was actually affected by these vulnerabilities. In fact, it seems very 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.+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.
