Which software ? I suspect a third party software re-using a portion
of the cygwin project.

The usual solution is to update to last cygwin version,
as this issue was solved years ago.
You can looks on the archive for the long list of same answer
in the past.
If you are using a third party software you need to
inform them that they are using an obsolete version
and ask for un update.
