I just read this regarding a vulnerability in MWB that may take up to 4 weeks to fix:

Seems a pretty basic error to make on their part not encrypting updates.

Thanks.

I see the article says "The company's CEO Marcin Kleczynski recommended customers use a workaround until the flaw has been completely eradicated, saying they should enable self-protection in the settings menu to "mitigate all of the reported vulnerabilities."

However in the free version you cannot do what he suggests as that option is greyed out. The only workaround would seem to be not to use the programme for the next month if you use the free version.

Mine is the free version, and as you say, it won't be used for a month unless some assurance of it being fixed is issued.

Have we any more news and has MWB made any sort of statement about this?

you could enable the trial of the paid version that lasts for a month, then revert to free after that.

I haven't seen anything yet - haven't been looking particularly though.
I just decided to leave it alone for a few weeks and then check around.
