This is a security release to fix a number of issues that were found by Kaspersky Lab. These issues affect both the client and server and could theoretically allow an malicious peer to take control over the software on the other side.

No working exploit is known at this time, and the issues require the peer to first be authenticated. We still urge users to upgrade when possible.
