You have the official upstream site, but NOT the official GnuWin32 site.
 As I already mentioned, if you want to know how long GnuWin32 is
supported, you'll have to ask the GnuWin32 people, since they are a
downstream distribution.  We do not maintain GnuWin32 here upstream.

A quick google search:
shows GnuWin32 (used to?) live here:

The last update to that page was in 2010.  In all likelihood, that means
it is no longer being maintained, and if so, that probably answers your
question - there is NO technical support for coreutils 5.3.0 binaries
obtained from the GnuWin32 folks, either from us at upstream (because we
don't care about releases that old here, only the current latest
release), or from the GnuWin32 folks (because they don't care enough
about their product to keep it up to date).
