I'm aware of the vulnerability and intend to publish a new package as
soon as possible.  A combination of the holiday period, technical
problems and assorted other real life is making this more difficult than
I would like, but I expect to get it released by 11 January at the
absolute latest, and hopefully much sooner than that.
