Dogecoin Core 1.8.3 is a security release for those who cannot upgrade to Dogecoin Core 1.10 ONLY. It fixes a remote security hole in miniupnpnc, as well as issues in regards to an upcoming announcement of possible DoS vulnerabilities. See the announcement on the bitcoin-dev mailing list for reference. It is strongly recommended to upgrade your installation in case you run a node open to inbound connections from the internet.
If you cannot upgrade to Dogecoin Core 1.10, you MUST update to 1.8.3 to remain secure.
