Hi,

(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:
http://lists.tartarus.org/pipermail/putty-announce/2013/000018.html

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 access.

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

Markus Schaber
