A new version of stunnel is now available in the Cygwin distribution.

This version includes a security fix:
*  OCSP code was fixed to properly reject revocated certificates.

The full upstream changelog is available at
http://www.stunnel.org/download/ChangeLog.txt, or in

If you use OCSP in stunnel, I strongly recommend that you upgrade your stunnel
package immediately.  

If you don't use OCSP, then you don't need this update, but it shouldn't hurt
either.  You'll probably want to upgrade anyway, because previous versions of
stunnel have been removed from the Cygwin archive, so setup will keep bothering
you about it until you do upgrade.
