PuTTY 0.62 リリース

PuTTY 0.62 がリリースされた。

いくつか修正があるが, “SECURITY FIX” として

“PuTTY 0.62 fixes a security issue present in 0.59, 0.60 and 0.61. If you log in using SSH-2 keyboard-interactive authentication (which is the usual method used by modern servers to request a password), the password you type was accidentally kept in PuTTY's memory for the rest of its run, where it could be retrieved by other processes reading PuTTY's memory, or written out to swap files or crash dumps.” (via “PuTTY version 0.62 is released”)

とある(0.61 より前のバージョンにも同様の問題があるので注意)。 日本語版はまだ見当たらない。
