The following packages have been uploaded to the Cygwin distribution:

* libXfont1-1.5.3-1
* libXfont-devel-1.5.3-1
* libXfont2_2-2.0.2-1
* libXfont2-devel-2.0.2-1

libXfont provides the core of the legacy X11 font system, handling the 
index files (fonts.dir, fonts.alias, fonts.scale), the various font file 
formats, and rasterizing them.  It is used by the X servers, the X Font 
Server (xfs), and some font utilities (e.g. bdftopcf), but should not be 
used by normal X11 clients.

These releases contain fixes for CVE-2017-13720 and CVE-2017-13722:
