Cygwin potentially adds a whole other layer of insecurity on top of
Windows.  We do try to keep security in mind but, nevertheless, we don't
recommend using Cygwin in a secure instalation unless there has been quite
a bit of validation.

In other words, the burden of proving security is up to the person
deploying Cygwin.
