Subject Fwd: Putty (plink) security updates and SVN clients
Date Fri, 09 Aug 2013 08:31:32 GMT
[Forwarded from the dev@ list as suggested on IRC]


(This is slightly off-topic, but I don't know any better way to contact the packagers of possible
affected distributions / clients I don't know about). 

I just learned that the windows SSH client putty got a security update:

I know that some windows based SSH Clients (for example TortoiseSVN and SharpSVN-based ones
like AnkhSVN and CODESYS SVN) ship with a plink.exe based on the putty code to provide svn+ssh

I guess those distributions should release updates to include the bug fixes.

A possible workaround for end-users is to download the fixed plink.exe from the putty distribution,
and configure their clients to use said plink.exe.

Another possible workaround is to not use the svn+ssh-protocol, of course. ☺

Best regards
