If you've been holding out on updating your SourceTree client, now might be the time to reconsider, with a "critical" vulnerability found in older versions of the program. Both Mac and Windows flavours are affected.

Regular users of SourceTree's Windows client will be familiar with bug SRCTREEWIN-2093. First reported in August 2014, the critical performance issue continues to sit as "unresolved" almost two years later. However, after being pushed back multiple times to future releases, it seems developer Atlassian might finally have a hold on it.
Atlassian's SourceTree is one of the nicer front-ends for version control systems Git and Mercurial. It's also free and open-source, the double-whammy of great qualities one wants in a piece of software. Unfortunately, as of version 1.6, the Windows build of the program has been crippled by an issue that causes constant freezes. The bug was reported back in August 2014, but as of late January, has yet to be fixed.
