I am currently running 6.0.7 on Windows, which came with openssl 184.108.40.206. My IT is requesting I uninstall openssl 220.127.116.11 or update to openssl 3.0.7 due to a recently patched security vulnerability. I’d rather not break the software, so I was hoping someone here could help answer a few questions
Is KiCad 6.0.7 (or a newer version) compatible with openssl 3.0.7? i.e. if I uninstall 3.0.3 and install 3.0.7 will KiCad still work?
If not, could I get away with uninstalling openssl and still be able to run basic features of KiCad?
@marekr kicad on windows uses system ssl libs, right? At least I looked at dll dependencies and couldn’t find anything using libssl or libcrypto, even libcurl uses crypt32.dll and not openssl. Or am I missing something?
Maybe we are still packaging openssl libs with kicad just by inertia and it doesn’t really need them.
