|jcpedersen||Problem with Cygwin programs (Ruby)|

For some time now I have had a category 2 security threat on Ruby 1.8.x.
The problem is, that this ruby installation is in my Cygwin installation, and (to my knowledge) is the latest version released (1.8.7 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 72) [i386-cygwin])
I do have a regular (windows) ruby v1.9.1p378, and this is OK, but what do I do with the Cygwin version ?
And what to do generally with Cygwin programs ?

The latest secure version of Ruby 1.8.x is 22.214.171.1241, as according to this advisory: http://secunia.com/advisories/41003/
Unfortunately, besides pointing out the latest secure version, there is little I can do. Secunia do not prepare or release patches for third-party software, so I have no way to tell if if/how it's possible to update a Cygwin installation of ruby.
However, I hope you might find this link useful in updating your system:
