You plan to fix this soon?

Comment 5 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 12:36:23 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '20'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Hello Erik,

Are mingw-libgcrypt versions in F22/rawhide affected by this issue? If so, we need to move this bug to the latest affected version. If not, let's close it with cantfix/wontfix or eol.

Comment 7 Eric Christensen 2015-06-04 21:19:38 UTC
Only affects the version in Fedora 20.

Comment 8 Erik van Pienbroek 2015-06-07 12:33:30 UTC
My apologies for not responding earlier.
The mingw-libgcrypt packages for Fedora 21 and later (including EPEL7) are more recent versions of libgcrypt which are not vulnerable. As Fedora 20 is EOL I'm going to close this bz
