Breathe easy with Enigmail/p≡p under Windows:
On October 3, we informed about a serious bug in Enigmail/p≡p mode for Windows which was introduced with the 1.0.23 update on September 26. At the earliest by the end of September, a maximum of 6,000 of the estimated 145,000 Windows users of Enigmail/p≡p were affected by this error. Since Friday, 10pm CEST and after intensive tests version 1.0.24 of p≡p distribution is now being delivered, which also protects affected users who did not follow our workaround.
