Stop releasing individual files like this and just give us an updated installer. Is this being done out of laziness or perhaps you've never heard of Continuous Integration? Once again this will be a nightmare to get upgraded across our 1000+ computers with the Dameware service, and this is a critical RCE vulnerability (!!!). Show some more respect for your customers, taking a few hours of your time to do a build will save us dozens of hours when we have to get the patch applied. This also makes it extremely difficult to even tell where the patch was applied, thus is a must for companies like mine where security is paramount. I mentioned this the last time you released Hotfix 2 in this sloppy way, but no one seems to care.
Also do some security audits on your code so your software to avoid vulnerabilities like these on the first place, this the worst kind of vulnerability possible, made even worse by the amateur upgrade process.
