Recently, a vulnerability of PyInstaller, that we use to compile the cmk-update-agent.exe executable on windows to one file, has been discovered, see here.

Only the windows version of the cmk-update-agent binary is affected. Unix versions and the python script are not affected.

We fix this issue by updating to PyIntaller 3.6.
