Feathercoin release 0.17.0.1 has a vulnerable version of the dependency to the zeromq library and puts the users which have this feature enabled at risk for a remote-code-execution bug related to CVE-2019-6250 .
Feathercoin release 0.17.0.2 fixed this bug by using zeromq version 4.3.1
Users compiling their own version of Feathercoin-wallet or daemon and are using the depends folder of the code to compile the dependencies should update to version 0.17.0.2
Users using the pre-compiled binaries for Linux Windows and MAC should also update to 0.17.0.2
Users using the Linux PPA should have received a patch for zeromq through their Linux packet manager and therefore don’t need to take any actions.
Users not using the zeromq features don’t need to take any actions.
The pre-compiled binaries for version 0.17.0.2 are under compilation and will be available within the next days.
The Android wallet Feathercoin-Wallet-2 is obsolete and removed from Playstore.
Alternatives for Android are
the Coinomi Wallet
the Edge Wallet
Both are available on Playstore
How to move to a new wallet
Send all your coins from Android-Wallet-2 to another wallet you have access to.
Export your private keys from Android-wallet-2 and follow the process described here.
If people just spend their time on this forum then they will be missing out on a lot of the Feathercoin conversations over at BitcoinTalk as well as everything else there.
However this forum does give us the opportunity to talk about everything Feathercoin without our conversations being hijacked or disappearing under the amount activity on the boards. The alternative cryptocurrency board at BitcoinTalk is very fast flowing now with such enthusiasm around all the coins.

All the best
How do I generate feathercoin addresses? Are they the same as Litecoin addresses or not?
I want to generate with an equivalent service like liteaddress.org and bitaddress.org
I’m curious about paper-wallets for Feathercoin myseld.

the win CLient is not availeble!
can anybody Post some Links to Mirrors or upload to any Source to share with the others please !??
You can find a list of mirrors on the thread here.
This is not a concern as we have checkpoints hardcoded into the clients so it would not accept another chain.
You can always start a new chain from the genesis block of any of the coins which will create your own version. It is the checkpoints that stop anyone from trying to force on a fake chain.
There is more information on checkpoints in the link below.
The secondary concern about old clients is mitigated by the fact that the majority of the hash power is on pools running the latest source code. When updating code I inform the pool operators.
I hope that this reassures you.
