[SECURITY] stunnel 5.57-1

cygwin-announce mailing list
stunnel 5.57-1 is now available in Cygwin. This release includes the
following security fix:

* The "redirect" option was fixed to properly handle "verifyChain = yes"

If you have stunnel installed, you should update to this release right
away. Please see the upstream changelog[1] for the full list of fixes and
improvements.

stunnel is a program that allows you to encrypt arbitrary TCP connections
inside TLS (Transport Layer Security, the successor to Secure Sockets Layer
(SSL)).  stunnel can allow you to secure non-TLS-aware daemons and
protocols (like POP, IMAP, LDAP, etc) by having stunnel provide the
encryption, requiring no changes to the daemon's code.
