A new version of Setup (2.930) has been uploaded to:

  https://cygwin.com/setup-x86_64.exe  (64 bit version)
  https://cygwin.com/setup-x86.exe     (32 bit version)

Changes compared to 2.929:

- Add some hardening against "DLL hijacking" attacks (Thanks to Corinna 
Vinschen for doing all the thinking involved)

Briefly, these attacks involve tricking you into downloading a malicious 
DLL with the same name as a Windows system DLL into the same directory 
you download and then run setup from.
